A team led by Dynetics’ technical solutions business will develop prototypes of the Common-Hypersonic Glide Body system under a potential three-year, $351.6M other transaction agreement with the U.S. Army.
Under the OTA, Dynetics Technical Solutions will also partner with Sandia National Laboratories to develop and manufacture 20 C-HGB systems for use by the Army, Missile Defense Agency and the U.S. Navy. The glide body will be integrated into the Army’s Long-Range Hypersonic Weapon system prototype, which will be developed under a $347M contract.
“We are honored to be selected for this high priority national security program. … The common hypersonic glide body is a vital component in the National Defense Strategy that includes weapons with increased power,” said Steve Cook, president of DTS.
DTS will serve as the prime contractor for the C-HGB project and provide systems engineering, program management, assembly, procurement and mechanical and electrical manufacturing support.
Lockheed will support assembly, manufacturing, analysis, systems engineering, test and integration work through its facilities in Alabama, California and Colorado.
Raytheon will leverage its hypersonic technological experience to developer power-conditioning actuation and control subassemblies for the glide body.
General Atomics will provide mechanical and electrical manufacturing, engineering and program management support through its sites in California, Alabama and Mississippi.
