The U.S. Navy has awarded General Dynamics a $78.4 million multiple-award, indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity contract to examine the science, architecture, engineering, functionality, interface and interoperability of cyberspace systems at the tactical, operational and strategic levels.
General Dynamics will provide basic and applied cyberspace research, digital forensics and reverse engineering capabilities, information operations expertise, cyber mission planning, doctrine and policy development, as well as modeling and simulation. The firm will also provide software design and implementation as well as systems integration, test and evaluation and demonstration.
John Jolly, vice president and general manager of General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems’ Cyber Systems division, said the fim offers “a full breadth of cyber domain capability, as well as the ability to tap into the technologies of our strategic partners”
“Utilizing best-in-breed technologies and building unique mission-specific cyber tools for a comprehensive approach to cyber operations, we will help ensure the Navy achieves its mission at sea and in cyberspace,” he added.
The contract has a total potential value of $204 million over five years, if all options are exercised.
