Progeny Systems Adds IA to Navy’s Submarines

March 1, 2024
The U.S. Navy is counting on General Dynamics’ Progeny Systems for information assurance and reliability monitoring system software for undersea vehicles.

Progeny Systems, acquired by General Dynamics’ Mission Systems in 2022, has been contracted by the U.S. Navy for information assurance (IA) and reliability monitoring system software for submarines. The cost-plus-fixed-fee contract has a one-year base value of $20.4 million but could be worth as much as $108.9 million over a five-year period.

The base contract is expected to last until December 2024, but it will run through December 2028 if all options are exercised. Work will be performed in Virginia and Rhode Island. 

General Dynamics Mission Systems provides mission-critical solutions for defense, intelligence, and cybersecurity applications. Progeny Systems specializes in support and services for submarines and surface ships (see image above).

Laura Hooks, vice-president and general manager of Maritime and Strategic Systems at General Dynamics Mission Systems, explained how Progeny Systems works with the U.S. Navy. “For years, Progeny Systems has been a trusted partner for the Navy, consistently providing innovative solutions to solve their toughest challenges. We are excited to have their impressive capabilities around weapon launch and control systems, acoustics, cybersecurity, surveillance, and multitiered architectures in the General Dynamics Mission Systems portfolio.”

Hooks added, “Through this contract award, we look forward to continuing to deliver these critical information assurance/cybersecurity capabilities to our Navy customers.”
