General Dynamics Mission Systems (GDMS) has secured a potential $104.2M contract to develop, produce and install systems for the U.S. Navy’s Columbia-class and the U.K.’s Dreadnought-class ballistic missile submarines.
The company’s mission systems business will perform the services and receive initial funds amounting to $39.3M, the Department of Defense said Wednesday.
GDMS is expected to complete work by November 2024.
Work will be performed in Pittsfield, Massachusetts (90%); the United Kingdom (6%); Quonset Point, Rhode Island (3%); and Groton, Connecticut (1%).
Columbia and Dreadnought submarines will replace the underwater vessels of the U.S. Ohio and U.K. Vanguard classes.
