GD Awarded $33 M for US Navy Aegis Illuminators

General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products was awarded a $32.6 million multi-year contract by the U.S. Navy for the production of MK82 gun and guided-missile directors and MK200 director controllers for six Aegis Weapon System ship sets.

The MK82 director, commanded by the MK200 controller, positions the fire control antenna to illuminate targets and provide guidance to missiles used for fleet defense from anti-ship missile threats and for ballistic missile defense. The Aegis Weapon System is the Navy’s most advanced and most capable integrated air and missile defense combat system.


Under this new contract the MK82 directors and MK200 director controllers will be installed on the Navy’s DDG 51 Arleigh Burke-class ships, starting with DDG 117. The delivery of all illuminator components will be completed by March 2018.

“The award of this competitive contract extends General Dynamics’ production of critical Aegis components over the next five years,” said Steve Elgin, vice president and general manager of armament systems. “The Aegis Weapon System provides the Navy with cutting-edge technology that will remain viable for decades to come.”
