FAIRFAX, Va., Feb. 16 (UPI) -- The U.S. Navy has contracted General Dynamics to support the Naval Air Warfare Center with information fusion research and development.
General Dynamics' Advanced Information Systems business unit was selected to compete for task orders to support the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division's Information Fusion Center. The task orders are worth a total of $95.2 million.
Information Fusion is the process of "correlating data from multiple sources to derive information of enhanced value to users," the release said.
"General Dynamics and its teammates have developed and fielded information fusion technologies for more than 25 years," Lou Von Thaer, General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems president, said in a statement.
"From day one, we will leverage this experience to deliver operationally proven information fusion systems enabling greater situational awareness, threat assessments and resource management."
