General Dynamics Mission Systems has been awarded a $5.5-million contract to sustain the US Army’s Prophet Enhanced sensor systems.
The agreement, which could grow to $481.6 million, was awarded by the Army Contracting Command on behalf of the Integrated Logistics Support Center.
The company will provide spare parts and obsolescence risk management for the signals intelligence system.
It will also provide product improvement updates, software modernization, and new equipment training to ensure that the Prophet remains operational and ready through 2035.
According to General Dynamics vice president Scott Dunderdale, ongoing conflicts have demonstrated the need to improve US signal intelligence and electronic warfare capabilities.
“This award recognizes General Dynamics Mission Systems’ ongoing leadership in the signal intelligence and electronic warfare space,” he said. “We intend to provide the best of industry to our army customers and soldiers at the tactical edge.”
Work for the contract is expected to be completed by January 2028.
Improved Situational Awareness
General Dynamics’ Prophet Enhanced is an all-weather, platform-independent tactical signal intelligence and electronic warfare support sensor system.
It can be mounted on ground vehicles such as Stryker armored fighting vehicles.
The system reportedly provides improved force protection, situational awareness, and target development for the US Army.
“It is interoperable on the global signal intelligence enterprise, delivering collected data to common databases for access by the intelligence community,” the company stated on its website.
