GD Bath Iron Team Wins Pre Design for LCS

July 18, 2003

The U.S. Navy has awarded General Dynamics (GD) Bath Iron Works a $9 million contract to develop a preliminary design for the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS). With a focus on affordability, LCS will provide the “New” Navy with the capability to defeat terrorist swarm boats, mines, and diesel submarines that are commonplace in coastal waters around the world.

Bath Iron Works leads an international team that includes General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems, General Dynamics Canada, General Dynamics Electric Boat, Austal USA, BAE Systems (BAESY), CAE of Canada, Maritime Applied Physics Corporation, and Qinetiq of the United Kingdom.

The team will work to develop further its trimaran concept based upon Austal's innovative, high-speed commercial ship design.
