General Dynamics (NYSE: GD) business unit has secured a potential 10-year, $731.9M contract from the U.S. Navy to sustain ground infrastructure of a narrowband military satellite communications platform.

General Dynamics Mission Systems will provide sustainment support for the Mobile User Objective System, designed to help a multiservice population to communicate globally, the Department of Defense said Friday.

The Pentagon expects GDMS to complete services under the sole-source indefinite-delivery/-indefinite quantity contract by November 2029.

Ninety-four percent of work will take place in Scottsdale, Ariz., and the rest will occur at various locations in Hawaii, California, Virginia, Australia and Italy.

The MUOS ground segment includes four stations located worldwide and works to help the Navy manage the orbiting satellites.
