Littoral Combat Ship Media Kit
DELIVERING MISSION ADAPTABILITY, FLEXIBILITY AND SPEED TO THE U.S. NAVY
The core mission system of the Independence-variant Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) is built on General Dynamics Mission Systems’ open architecture computing infrastructure (OPEN CI), a technical infrastructure that is not bound by proprietary systems. General Dynamics has applied its proven open architecture and open business model to provide the U.S. Navy with the most capable and most affordable solutions for the LCS program. The result is a flexible information technology backbone that allows for interoperability across the fleet, making it possible for the U.S. 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.
