The U.S. Navy has awarded Bath Iron Works, a subsidiary of General Dynamics (NYSE:GD) , a $45.8m contract option to provide services associated with the detail design and construction of the DDG 1000 Zumwalt-class destroyer. The contract being modified was initially awarded in February 2008.

Under this award, Bath Iron Works (BIW) will continue to provide services for the DDG 1000 program, including configuration management and maintenance of class design products; program management; configuration and data management; system and ship integration services; production engineering services; and ship system segment management.

DDG 1000 represents the Navy's next generation of multi-mission surface combatants which will provide a broad range of capabilities that are vital both to supporting the global war on terror and to fighting and winning major combat operations.
