General Dynamics Awarded $33m in Navy SeaPort-e Orders

Wednesday, April 25, 2007
General Dynamics Information Technology, a business unit of General Dynamics, has been awarded four SeaPort-e task orders by the U.S. Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) Combat Direction Systems Activity (CDSA) at Dam Neck, Va., to support its intelligence and temporary alteration programs. General Dynamics will continue to provide and expand its system lifecycle deployment and operational engineering support services for the programs’ equipment, systems, subsystems, components, peripherals and auxiliaries. The total potential value of these task orders if all options are exercised is $32.6 million over five years.

General Dynamics will support NAVSEA CDSA Dam Neck on-site at U.S. military commands. General Dynamics has supported NAVSEA Dam Neck for five years through a previous contract and has been supporting the Cryptologic Carry-On Programs (CCOP) for over 30 years. “As the largest of the Navy’s system commands, NAVSEA and its directorates are critical to the success of the nation’s ships and combat systems,” said Ken Slaght, vice president and general manager of Maritime Systems Sector for General Dynamics Information Technology. CDSA Dam Neck’s mission is to arm warfighters with innovative capabilities by delivering force-level integrated and interoperable engineering solutions, mission critical control systems, and associated testing and training technologies which meet the requirements of the maritime, joint, special warfare and information operation domains.
