FAIRFAX, Va., Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- General Dynamics Information Technology, a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD), has been awarded a two-year, $6 million task order by the Air Force Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Agency to provide technical support services to the Air Force Joint Worldwide Intelligence Communications System (AF JWICS) Enterprise.  General Dynamics will help the Air Force streamline its communications networks and integrate with national-level Intelligence Community Information Technology Enterprise (IC ITE) and Desk Top Enterprise (DTE) initiatives.

Under this contract, General Dynamics will deliver a wide range of information technology (IT) services to support the continued operations of AF JWICS from numerous service centers and will assist the government in operating, maintaining and sustaining the centers that will provide core services to support the Air Force missions worldwide.
