FAIRFAX, Va. – The U.S. Navy has awarded General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract with the total potential value of $83 million for the development, qualification, production and support of the Common Enterprise Display System (CEDS) display consoles. General Dynamics will provide program management, engineering, manufacturing, integrated logistics support, tests and evaluations for CEDS display consoles in support of DDG 1000 and Aegis Modernization.
