General Dynamics Corp. won eight delivery orders worth $79.3 million to continue providing engineering, technical and administrative services for work involving joint military operations.
For the orders, the company's advanced information systems business unit in Arlington, Va., will develop and assess new joint warfighting concepts, organizational structures and emerging technologies for the Joint Experimentation Program, the company said.
The Defense Department program applies scientific procedures to assess the effectiveness of proposed joint warfighting elements and to determine if they cause changes in military effectiveness. The work will involve the Joint Futures Laboratory, a venue for classified and unclassified electronically-distributed experimentation.
The orders were issued from a contract that was originally awarded in 2004. These orders follow a $92 million contract extension awarded in July, and bring the total contract value to $182.2 million. The contract includes an option through 2009.
General Dynamics has provided support for the Joint Experimentation Program and the Joint Futures Lab since 1998.Roseanne Gerin is a staff writer for
