General Dynamics-Advanced Information Systems has won a USD 10.4 million modification to previously awarded contract for fiscal 2014 and 2015 multi-purpose processor (MPP) cabinet and the Total Ship Monitoring System (TSMS).
The contract provides funding for the development and production of the MPPs and TSMS (TI-14) for the U.S. submarine fleet.
The multipurpose processor is used within the ARCI program to improve submarine acoustic processing capability on Seawolf and Virginia class submarines. ARCI is a sonar system that integrates and improves towed array, hull array, sphere array, and other ship sensor processing.
