General Dynamics Land Systems has won a $26.2 million contract from the US Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) for MK46 Modification (Mod) 2 Gun Weapon Systems (GWS).
The MK46 30mm Naval Weapon System production is for the use onboard Littoral Combat Ships (LCS) and Zumwalt-class (DDG-1000) ships.
The MK46 is an all-weather, day/night, fully stabilized weapon system. Its lightweight, modular and compact size makes it an ideal candidate for numerous anti-surface and anti-air defense applications. The systems family of turrets represents a balance of lethality, performance, reliability and versatility, and it is one of the most cost-effective medium-caliber weapon systems.
General Dynamics has delivered 38 MK46 systems to the US Navy since 2005. It is the main deck gun for LPD-17 ships and is the secondary gun battery for LCS, and Zumwalt-class (DDG-1000) ships. The MK46 Mod 2 GWS incorporates new open architecture, fault isolation software and an embedded trainer.
Work is expected to be completed by November 2016.
