US Navy Awards GDMS $335M Contract to Continue Trident II Program Support

Fairfax, Virginia-based General Dynamics Mission Systems has announced a $335.1 million follow-on contract from the U.S. Navy extending full lifecycle and operational support for Trident II Fire Control Systems onboard Ohio-class ballistic missile submarines through 2028.

The contract also continues development and installation work for FCSs on new Columbia-class SSBNs and concept design for the Trident II Missile Life Extension Two effort, GDMS said.

Work is expected to be performed largely within the continental United States. The contract includes options to extend performance until October 2030 and increase the cumulative value to $611.7 million.

In a press release, GDMS said it “supports the Navy’s top priority” by conducting FCS development and installation activities for three Columbia-class hulls and one U.K. Dreadnought-class hull.

Laura Hooks, the company’s vice president and general manager of maritime and strategic systems, affirmed that GDMS will continue to provide the U.S. and U.K. navies with “innovative solutions.”

GDMS received a six-year, $273 million contract modification in 2022 to develop subsystems for U.S. and U.K. SSBN FCSs.
