A General Dynamics business unit has been awarded a potential $23.5 million contract to help the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command develop a modeling software for researchers to identify hazardous material incidents.
General Dynamics Information Technology will design technology for gauging the effects of a chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear event under the Pentagon’s Joint Effects Model Increment 2 program, General Dynamics said Thursday.
SPAWAR wants the JEM software to have web application interfaces and help the military implement CBRN defense strategies in warfighter deployment areas.
General Dynamics will also provide system integration, engineering and management support services to SPAWAR.
Work under the five-year, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract will occur in Middletown, R.I., San Diego and Buffalo, N.Y.
