General Dynamics‘ (NYSE: GD) mission systems business was awarded a six-year, $273 million contract modification to perform technical engineering work required to manufacture subsystems of the fire control technology for U.S. and U.K. nuclear ballistic missile submarines.
This award from the U.S. Navy’s Strategic Systems Programs office contains option line items and supports production requirements for the Common Missile Compartment, the Department of Defense said Thursday.
CMC is a key component of USN Columbia-class and British Dreadnought-class underwater vessels.
The Navy obligated $34.6 million at the time of modification award using its shipbuilding and conversion funds for fiscal years 2021 and 2022.
In December 2019, General Dynamics Mission Systems received a $300 million follow-on contract from the service to modernize the Trident strategic weapon system, including the fire control subsystem.
