General Dynamics Mission Systems has received a $731.8 million IDIQ contract from the US Navy to support the Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) ground system.

MUOS is a next-generation satellite communications system that provides secure voice and data communications for US forces worldwide.

General Dynamics Mission Systems provides the integrated ground segments for MUOS, which will soon provide secure cell phone-like communications for personnel on the move.

MUOS recently completed its Multiservice Operational Test and Evaluation, confirming that the system is operationally effective, operationally survivable and cyber survivable.

General Dynamics’ contract will run through to November 2029.
