The General Dynamics (GD)-developed weapons control system is based on an open-architecture and open-business model approach which facilitates system enhancements.
The majority of work under this contract will be performed in Pittsfield, Mass.; Fairfax, Va.; and Middletown, R.I. Remaining options under the contract could extend work into 2018.
