General Dynamics Information Technology, a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD), has been awarded a task order to modernize the telephone switch systems for Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Fla.; Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, Ga.; and Naval Station Mayport, Fla. The award, from the U.S. Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR), is valued at $10m. Work is expected to be completed in early 2009. Under the task order, General Dynamics will upgrade the existing switch systems with the latest Approved Products List (APL)-certified software and replace non-supportable elements within the voice network. General Dynamics will also install Voice-over-Internet-Protocol (VoIP) for 5,000 users in the Jacksonville area. The upgrade will provide the Navy with increased functionality while minimizing risk to the ongoing mission of these facilities, said Ken Slaght, vice president and general manager of Maritime Systems for General Dynamics Information Technology, indicated.
