General Dynamics to advance Marine Corps C2 system

General Dynamics C4 Systems has won a $41.3 million contract from the Navy to support the second phase of the Common Aviation Command Control System (CAC2S), the Defense Department said Sept. 29.

Under the contract, General Dynamics will furnish engineering development models to support operational testing and a build-to-print technical data package for the program.

CAC2S is a program designed to give Marine Corps operators the ability to share mission-critical voice, video, sensor, and command and control data and information in order to integrate aviation and ground combat planning and operations in support of the Marine Air-Ground Task Force.

If all options are exercised, the contract could be worth up to to $61.4 million.

The company will do more than half of the work in Scottsdale, Ariz., and the remaining work in several other sites in the continental United States.
