Aerospace and defense technology provider General Dynamics (GD) has received a $12 million task order from FAA to provide support to the agency's NextGen Integration and Evaluation Capability (NIEC) under the System Engineering 2020 program.
The System Engineering 2020 program is a 10-year contract award issued to GD in 2010 for NextGen research, with a potential value of $1.2 billion if all options are exercised. Funding is provided through individual task orders, such as the $12 million award issued to GD on Monday to provide engineering, operations, software design and development, infrastructure and administrative support to NIEC’s laboratory located at the William J. Hughes Technical Center at the Atlantic City (N.J.) International Airport.
The General Dynamics team for the System Engineering 2020 program includes Gulfstream and Jet Aviation.
In addition to the latest task order, the General Dynamics team has been tasked with performing mission-analysis for air traffic management automation, avionic systems operations and maintenance and cost-benefit analysis.
