SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., May 22 (UPI) -- General Dynamics C4 Systems is producing enhanced, vehicle-mounted tactical ground station intelligence systems for the U.S. Army.

The TGS Lot D systems are part of the Distributed Common Ground System-Army, a primary deployed system for posting, processing and distributing intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance information in real time to intelligence analysts and commanders.

The Army order to General Dynamics C4 Systems calls for 10 systems with an option for 11 more. The value of the contract, if the option is exercised, is $31.5 million.

Delivery of the new TGS is scheduled for the third quarter of this year.

DCGS-A, of which TGA is a party, provides Army analysts with access to more than 600 data sources and allows rapid collaboration through shared data access. General Dynamics said TGS-Lot D systems allow analysts to comb through millions of classified and unclassified records within minutes, giving commanders status updates on persons of interest and imminent threats.

"The TGS system finds the needle in the haystack and gives commanders an unprecedented ability to make informed decisions faster," said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics C4 Systems.
