General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics, was awarded two contract modifications totaling $50 million to continue supporting the AN/BYG-1 combat control system aboard U.S. Navy and Royal Australian Navy submarines, as part of the AN/BYG-1 modernization program for the tactical control systems (TCS) and weapons control systems (WCS).
General Dynamics is delivering enhanced capabilities across multiple submarine platforms, providing fleet operators and commanders with a common operational picture that strengthens real-time intelligence and improves situational awareness.
The open architecture framework facilitates the rapid integration of advanced capabilities developed by commercial, defense and academic entities on an annual or bi-annual basis. The common processing baseline across all submarines also helps ensure the independent, yet parallel, development and certification of the TCS and WCS.
