Littoral Combat Ship (LCS)
Delivering Mission Adaptability, Flexibility And Speed To The U.S. Navy
The core mission system of the U.S. Navy's next generation Independence-variant Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) is built on General Dynamics Mission Systems open architecture computing infrastructure (OPEN CI). OPEN CI allows for interoperability across the fleet and seamless integration of any current or future open architecture system applications. It is a flexible information technology backbone that uses strict industry standards, commercially available products, and published interfaces. Our open architecture design makes it possible for the Navy to take advantage of rapidly changing advancements in the marketplace, deploy technology upgrades, and adapt to new and more complex missions-faster and at lower costs.
