FAIRFAX, Va., June 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Navy has awarded General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems a $31.5 million contract for the performance-based logistics (PBL) support of the Advanced Mission Computers (AMC) in the Navy's F/A-18 Hornet and AV-8B Harrier aircrafts. This is the second five-year performance-based logistics contract that General Dynamics has won with the Naval Supply Systems Command. General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems is a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD).

"We have a long history of providing highly reliable mission computers for the Navy's airborne programs," said Mike Tweed-Kent, vice president and general manager of General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems Mission Integration Systems division. "Building upon this relationship, we are continuing to streamline logistics support and deliver systems with improved reliability and flexibility through our open architecture model, providing the Navy with enhanced cost savings and strengthened performance capabilities."

Work under this contract will include the repair of the AMCs for the F/A-18E, F/A-18F and EA-18G model aircraft, along with the mission computer systems developed for the AV-8B. The AMC is a ruggedized, integrated information processing system built with commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) products. Performing general purpose tasks that include input/output, video, voice and graphics processing, the AMC product family is designed to operate reliably in the extreme environmental conditions of today's high-performance fighter aircraft. Additionally, with its open architecture model, the AMC allows for the rapid insertion of emerging technologies, providing the Navy with the ability to quickly address its constantly evolving and fast-changing mission requirements.

This contract will be performed primarily at the General Dynamics facility in Bloomington, Minn., where it is supported by more than 200 employees. The General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems team on this contract also includes Honeywell Aerospace ( Phoenix, Ariz.) for the repair of the three module types used in the AMC system.
