One of the three contracts, for a cost-plus-fixed-fee $6.6 million, will go toward providing the U.S. Army with engineering services and logistics work on a tactical airspace integration air traffic control system in work performed through June 30, 2016.
Another two General Dynamics wins, for $172 million and $26.5 million, respectively, will go toward contract modifications for maintenance of dock landing ship USS Carter Hall, and sorting and classifying materials for reissuing to deploying units in Kuwait.
