General Dynamics wins US Army CGS contract

9th December 2011 - 15:21 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The US Army has issued General Dynamics a follow-on contract to update and maintain the operational readiness of all Common Ground Stations (CGS) in use with the Army. According to a 9 December 2011 company statement, the contract will see General Dynamics provide the spare parts, assemblies, engineering support and other logistics needed to keep the CGS fleet technically current and fully operational worldwide.

Developed and supported by General Dynamics, the CGS are deployed by the Army to assist commanders in the collection, analysis and distribution of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance information gathered by airborne radar aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles and other sensors.

General Dynamics has been supplying the system to the US Army since the original contract award for 102 units in 1996, and maintaining the fleet since a 2005 contract award. The company said that work in support of the $47 million Common Ground Station logistics and maintenance contract will be performed by General Dynamics over a five year period.
