TYSONS CORNER, VA, June 18, 2018 — The U.S. Navy has awarded General Dynamics’ (NYSE: GD) mission systems unit a contract to update and maintain a satellite simulator at the Naval Postgraduate School’s Spacecraft Research and Design Center/Adaptive Optics Center of Excellence, ExecutiveBiz reported Wednesday.

The company said Tuesday the simulator is a model of a communications satellite and is used to train students to manage technical aspects of space systems, such as satellite command, control and communications.

“Updating the simulator to perform just like the actual system is a tremendous training opportunity for these advanced degree students,” said Manny Mora, vice president and general manager of space and intelligence systems at General Dynamics Mission Systems.
