US Navy modifies General Dynamics’ illuminators contract

General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products has been given an $11.2m (£6.9m) contract modification by the US Navy for the continued production of MK82 directors and MK200 director controllers for Aegis Combat System illuminators.

This award modifies a contract issued in September 2010 by the Naval Sea Systems Command, which was valued at $11.5m, with a total potential value of $29.5m if all options are exercised.
