GA Finalizes Contract for Advanced Launch and Recovery Systems

(San Diego, Calif., July 13, 2010) -- General Atomics signed a fixed-price contract modification for the production of the Advanced Arresting Gear (AAG) and the Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System (EMALS) for the U.S. Navy's new CVN 78 aircraft carrier, to be named Gerald R. Ford.

This action modifies the existing contract awarded in 2009 by the Naval Air Systems Command, Patuxent River, Md. It includes a delivery incentive, based on the contract schedule of delivery of the EMALS equipment to the shipyard.

"Our production efforts started last June for EMALS and in November for AAG. All long-lead materials are on order and component manufacturing is in process for a number of subsystems. We are on track for CVN 78," said Electromagnetic Systems Division Vice President R. Scott Forney, III.
