General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems was awarded a contract by Austal USA to be the Platform Systems Engineering Agent (PSEA) of Littoral Combat Ships (LCS) 14 and 16. These are the fifth and sixth ships of the Independence-variant LCS to be ordered by the U.S. Navy under a 10-ship block buy contract awarded in December 2010 to Austal USA.

As part of the Austal USA LCS Industry team General Dynamics is responsible for the design, integration and testing of the ships’ electronic systems including the combat system, networks and seaframe control.

With its ‘plug and play’ ability to quickly integrate new technology into ship systems, OPEN CI provides platform flexibility and quick configuration in response to dynamic and evolving Navy mission requirements.

With its flexible architecture, OPEN CI facilitates the integration of best-in-class commercially available products, quickly and cost-effectively.
