General Dynamics awarded $23M to develop software for Navy

Posted 4/10/14

MIDDLETOWN – The U.S. Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command has awarded a $23.5 million contract to General Dynamics Information Technology to develop software designed to model the effects of releasing chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear materials.

Under the five-year contract, General Dynamics will develop the modeling software that will serve as the foundation for the Joint Effects Model Increment 2 system, as well as software architecture for the Joint Effects Model science and technology prototype, a Web-application interface that provides defense-planning for chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear material scenarios to remotely deployed combatants.

In addition, General Dynamics will provide program and systems-engineering management support and serve as the integrator of the Joint Effects Model Increment 2 software. Ed Hudson, vice president and general manager of General Dynamics Information Technology’s network and mission systems segment, said the contract would expand the company’s presence in the chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear weapons space.

Work under the contract will be performed at the General Dynamics facilities in Middletown, as well as in Buffalo, N.Y., and San Diego.
