General Dynamics seeking to improve supply chain, manufacturing techniques

  • 27-Sep-2011 09:48 EDT

The U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) selected General Dynamics Information Technology as an awardee for the Manufacturing Technologies for Remotely Piloted Vehicles contract. General Dynamics will develop new design methods to improve supply chain and manufacturing techniques for all aspects of Remotely Piloted Vehicles and Aircraft (RPVs/RPA), including airborne and ground components. In addition, General Dynamics will provide program management, systems engineering, and research and development services. Work will be performed at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, OH. The company plans to hire approximately 10 additional employees to support this contract. The five-year contract has a total potential value of $45 million.
