GDAIS To Help Navy Operate Raytheon-Made Radar, Sonar System

General Dynamics will provide engineering and technical support for tactical control systems installed on U.S. and Australian navy submarines, the Defense Department announced Friday.

The company’s advanced information systems unit will help the naval forces work with the Raytheon-made AN/BYG-1 through July 2013.

According to Raytheon, the AN/BYG-1(V) is designed for conventional submarines and includes technology for sonar, electronic support measures, radar, navigation, periscopes, communication, command and weapons.

Raytheon says it designed the system according to commercial open architecture standards for interoperability, scalability and supplier interdependence for hardware and software.

The company is also developing target acquisition and surveillance sensors for the U.S. Navy’s MH-60R Seahawk helicopter fleet.

NATO will work with the company to determine how the alliance can apply the sensor package to its air and missile defense systems.
