General Dynamics Mission Systems won a $335 million cost-plus-incentive-fee and cost-plus-fixed-fee follow-on contract as the prime integrator for the Trident II Fire Control System.
Under the fiscal year 2024 FCS Omnibus Contract, General Dynamics will continue to provide full life cycle and operational support for all deployed Ohio-class ballistic missile submarine FCSs, while continuing the development, production and installation for all new Columbia-class SSBN FCSs through 2028.
The contract includes options that, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value to $611.6 million.
“For more than 65 years General Dynamics Mission Systems has provided the U.S. submarine force with highly reliable fire control systems,” said Laura Hooks, vice president and general manager of maritime and strategic systems at General Dynamics Mission Systems. “We look forward to continuing to provide the U.S. and U.K. Navies with state-of-the-art, reliable, and innovative solutions. These SSBN submarines are our nation’s highest priority, and we take pride in delivering these systems on time and on budget.”
General Dynamics Mission Systems supports the Navy with FCS development, production, sparing and installation activities for three Columbia-class hulls and one U.K. Dreadnought-class hull. Concept development for the Trident II Missile Life Extension Two will continue under this contract through detailed design.
Work will be performed in Pittsfield, Massachusetts; Bangor, Washington; Kings Bay, Georgia; Loanhead, Midlothian, U.K.; Cape Canaveral, Florida; Groton, Connecticut; and Quonset Point, Rhode Island.
If all options are exercised, work will continue until October 2030.
