The U.S. Navy Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center (SPAWAR), San Diego,
California, has awarded General Dynamics Robotic Systems an $8.5 million
contract for two Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs) for the Littoral Combat Ship
Anti-Submarine Warfare Mission Module. The total value of the contract, if all
options are exercised, is $11.3 million. General Dynamics Robotic Systems is a
part of General Dynamics Land Systems (Sterling Heights, Michigan), a wholly
owned subsidiary of General Dynamics.
General Dynamics will provide up to four autonomous USVs by adapting its
industry-leading vehicle command and control system to the unmanned surface
vehicle domain. The USV will employ towed arrays, dipping sonar sensors and
acoustic sources as payloads to carry out its Anti-Submarine Warfare mission.
