General Dynamics Missions Systems will produce AN/SPG-62 antenna system parabolic radio frequency reflectors for the US Navy under a $16 million IDIQ contract awarded by the US Department of Defense on 29 July.

The AN/SPG-62 antenna system is designed to be mounted and operated in a surface vessel’s open spaces as subsystems of the MK99 fire control system, part of the Aegis combat system suite.

The antenna system reflector enables the continuous-wave radio frequency signal from the MK99’s radar transmitter to illuminate targets to be engaged, fired upon and destroyed by the ship’s weapons.

Work is expected to be completed by December 2024.
