Navy orders improved Surface Electronic Warfare System

ARLINGTON, Va., 11 January 2005. The U.S. Navy has awarded General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems an $8.8 million contract modification to continue system integration and development of the Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program (SEWIP).

SEWIP is a spiral-development upgrade and replacement program for the AN/SLQ-32 Electronic Warfare (EW) system aboard several classes of Navy combatant ships. This system has been the primary EW and Anti- Ship Missile Defense (ASMD) system since the early 1980s.

This upgrade will add small-ship electronic support capabilities, developed by the Naval Research Laboratory, as well as special signal detection, processing capabilities, network centric warfare capabilities, and display enhancements with automation to improve operator situational awareness. Initial delivery of the second upgrade is expected by Dec. 2005.

This follows the first upgrade in the SEWIP program that improved data processing to better correlate and display signal intercepts from the legacy antenna, enhancing processors and control consoles on surface ships through 2025. Initial delivery of the first upgrade was completed in Oct. 2004.

Work will be performed in Fairfax, Va., and includes systems engineering, architecture design, software engineering, development, integration, and testing. The overall contract runs through Jan. 2008 and has a total value of $16.9 million, including these upgrades.
General Dynamics received the original award on Jan. 28, 2004, in the name of Digital Systems Resources Inc. That company had been acquired by General Dynamics in Sept. 2003.

General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems (GDAIS), headquartered in Arlington, Va., is a leading provider of transformational mission solutions in command, control, communications, and computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR). Customers include those in the defense, intelligence, homeland security and homeland defense communities.

General Dynamics, headquartered in Falls Church, Va., employs approximately 71,600 people worldwide and anticipates 2004 revenue in excess of $19 billion. The company is a market leader in mission-critical information systems and technologies; land and expeditionary combat systems, armaments and munitions; shipbuilding and marine systems; and business aviation.
