General Dynamics Mission Systems announced that it was awarded a $335,071,035 cost-plus-incentive-fee and cost-plus-fixed-fee follow on contract as the prime integrator for the Trident II Fire Control System (FCS).

Under the FY24 FCS Omnibus Contract, General Dynamics will continue to provide full life cycle and operational support for all deployed Ohio-class ballistic missile submarine (SSBN) FCSs as well as continue the development, production and installation for all new Columbia-class SSBN FCSs through 2028. The contract includes options which, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value to $611,658,461.

General Dynamics Mission Systems supports the Navy’s top priority with FCS development, production, sparing and installation activities for three Columbia-class hulls (US04, US05 and US06), and one United Kingdom Dreadnought-class hull (UK12). Concept development for the Trident II Missile Life Extension Two (D5LE2) will continue under this contract through detailed design.

“For more than 65 years General Dynamics Mission Systems has provided the US submarine force with highly reliable fire control systems. We look forward to continuing to provide the US and UK Navies with state-of-the-art, reliable, and innovative solutions. These SSBN submarines are our nation’s highest priority, and we take pride in delivering these systems on time and on budget,” said Laura Hooks, vice president and general manager of Maritime and Strategic Systems at General Dynamics Mission Systems.

Work will be performed in Pittsfield, Massachusetts (83%); Bangor, Washington (4%); Kings Bay, Georgia (4%); Loanhead, Midlothian, United Kingdom (3%); Cape Canaveral, Florida (2%); Groton, Connecticut (2%); and Quonset Point, Rhode Island (2%). If all options are exercised, work will continue until October 2030.
