GD Wins Further Submarine Modernization Deal

General Dynamics received a $20 million contract modification from the U.S. Navy to continue modernizing the AN/BYG-1 Weapons Control System (WCS) Technology Insertion and Advanced Processing Build software for U. S. Navy and Royal Australian Navy submarines.

The AN/BYG-1 software analyzes and tracks submarine and surface-ship contact information, providing tactical, situational awareness for submarine crews including the capability to target and employ torpedoes and missiles.

First awarded to General Dynamics in 2009, the AN/BYG-1 software system uses commercial off-the-shelf hardware in an open-architecture computing environment ensuring that the submarine combat control systems are consistently maintained and updated with the latest technology advancements. The Navy’s Los Angeles, Seawolf, Virginia and SSGN-class submarines and the Royal Australian Navy’s Collins-class submarines use the AN/BYG-1 software and hardware.

Work on the AN/BYG-1 software system will take place at the General Dynamics facility in Pittsfield, Mass.
