General Dynamics Wins $86.7M Navy Contract for Underwater Unmanned Vehicle

General Dynamics (NYSE: GD) has been awarded a contract with the U.S. Navy’s Naval Sea Systems Command to design and build the Surface Mine Countermeasure unmanned underwater vehicle system.

The contract has a potential value of $86.7 million for one Engineering Development Model and five low-rate initial production systems if all options are exercised.

“General Dynamics continues to deliver affordable, flexible solutions that meet the Navy’s vision for open architecture, ” said Lou Von Thaer, president of General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems. “Commanders and sailors will now have the most capable and advanced system available to detect, avoid and defeat mine threats.”

The system will be a part of the Littoral Combat Ship Mine Warfare mission package and will allow Navy commanders and sailors to reliably detect and identify mines in high-clutter underwater environments in a single pass.
