SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., May 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- General Dynamics C4 Systems
received a contract modification to the Range Radar Replacement Program (RRRP)
to develop a new High/Medium Power Close-in Radar system. The Close-in radar
system is mobile and will provide unprecedented fidelity when tracking
munitions and other targets at a range of 37 miles or more. The contract
modification is valued at $16 million and funds the engineering, development
and initial manufacture of the new radar system. General Dynamics C4 Systems
is a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD).

"The Close-in radar system is the second in a new generation of range
instrumentation radars that deliver cost-effective, digital technologies and
systems needed to meet the Army's goal of modernizing test ranges in Alabama,
Arizona, New Mexico and Maryland," said Chris Marzilli, president of General
Dynamics C4 Systems.

The Close-in radar system joins the Fly-out radar system, which was the first
range instrumentation radar system ordered using the RRRP contract. The
Close-in radar system will acquire information about the launch and early
stages of flight for munitions and other low-flying objects. The Fly-out radar
system, which has just completed the requirements phase of development, is
capable of tracking up to 40 test objects over a range of 60 miles. The new
mobile radar systems eliminate the cost and downtime associated with
maintaining and moving decades-old, antiquated radar systems that are
currently in place at Army test ranges.

A General Dynamics-led team was awarded the Range Radar Replacement Program in
June 2012. The program replaces an aging fleet of radar systems currently
operating at U.S. Army test ranges located at White Sands Test Center, N.M.;
Yuma Test Center, Ariz.; Aberdeen Test Center, Md.; and Redstone Test Center,

The General Dynamics RRRP solution leverages XSTAR family of instrumentation
radar developed by STAR Dynamics.

The General Dynamics team is led by General Dynamics C4 Systems, based in
Scottsdale, Ariz., and includes STAR Dynamics of Hilliard, Ohio; Georgia Tech
Research Institute of Atlanta; and EO Imaging of Melbourne, Fla. Work will be
performed in Scottsdale, Ariz.; Kilgore, Longview and Richardson, Texas; State
College, Pa.; Hilliard, Ohio; Reston, Va.; Fort Walton Beach and Melbourne,
Fla.; and Atlanta.
