Navy awards contract for submarine processors

The Navy has awarded a $36.6 million contract to General Dynamics Corp. for engineering, technical services and production for its multipurpose processor program for submarines.

Under the terms of the contract, General Dynamics' advanced information systems unit will provide engineering and technical services, and associated materials for the design and development of upgrades, systems support and production.

The submarine program is a combination of hardware and software that enables submarines to process data collected by towed and hull sonar arrays. The processed data provides information regarding the location of other nearby vessels, increasing the survivability and lethality of the submarine. The program is installed on several classes of submarine and is a major subsystem of the Acoustic Rapid Commercial Off-The-Shelf Insertion system.

The contract continues work previously provided by Digital Systems Resources Inc., which was acquired by General Dynamics in September.
