General Dynamics Developing Navy Aegis Gun, Missile Directors

General Dynamics’ armament and technical products division will provide the Navy with weapon system illuminator components, the company announced Tuesday.

Under a $6.9 million contract modification, the division will produce MK82 gun and guided missile directors and MK200 director controllers for Aegis Combat System illuminators on DDG-51 ships.

Work on program management, assembly and testing of the illuminator components will start in August at company facilities in Vermont, home to nearly 400 employees.

Originally awarded in September 2010, the contract’s total value to date is $29.5 million and all contract work is set to finish by June 2013, the company said.

MK82 director sets the fire control system antenna for illuminating targets and the director controller produces the drive signal to position the director.

Aegis Combat Systems are tactical radar anti-ship missile threat defense systems on Navy ships.

The company’s advanced information systems unit is providing submarine monitoring equipment to the Navy.
