GDMS to Provide Radios for Air Force’s Next Generation Survivor Radio Program

The U.S. Air Force Life Cycle Management Center has awarded General Dynamics Mission Systems a two-year, $22.2 million contract to support the Next Generation Survivor Radio program.

GDMS will deliver 50 radio prototypes that the Air Force will subject to an 18-month test and certification period if the service selects the company’s solution through a down-select process. Rachel Oberc, vice president for radio frequency systems at GDMS, said the radio will operate in anti-access and area denial environments using low-probability of intercept/low-probability of detection communications.

The NGSR program is an Air Force-led effort to modernize the Combat Survivor Evader Locator architecture. NGSR is designed to provide a secure end-to-end communications capability for warfighter search and rescue missions, GDMS said Tuesday.

The contract is one of several contracts GDMS secured from the U.S. military in recent months.

In January, GDMS won a $335.1 million contract from the U.S. Navy to continue providing lifecycle and operational support for Trident II Fire Control Systems onboard Ohio-class ballistic missile submarines. In addition to supporting the submarines’ systems, GDMS was also tasked to continue development and installation work on fire control systems for the Columbia-class submarines and concept designs for the Trident II Missile Life Extension Two effort.
