Our Mission

Our goal is to support our warfighters every day. We aim to improve their efficacy, safety and defensive strategies. Our main area of support has been the U.S. Navy, but we work with all branches of the military, government and civilian services.

Submarine modernization is one of our core competencies. We have designed, built and provided complete lifecycle support to mission-critical systems across the submarine force.

What We Do

From development, production, and legacy systems support, to first-time prototypes, we develop military solutions that span sea, land and air to support the efficacy and safety of our warfighters.

We build mission planning systems that enable operators at all levels of command to plan, collaborate, coordinate, execute, rehearse, conduct mission walk-through in 4D, monitor execution, and re-plan in real-time.

Progeny Manufacturing and Production

Manufacturing & Production

Many of our hardware and technology solutions require custom-produced parts that are manufactured in-house. We are a full-scale supplier from prototype to finished product for electronics manufacturing and integration.

Submarine Test & Evaluation

Submarine Test & Evaluation

Our team's technical expertise supports planning, logistics, execution, and data collection for platform development testing, weapons sensor accuracy trials, and weapons compatibility testing of new construction submarines.

Progeny Testing Facilities

Testing Capabilities

Our open water acoustic testing facility is permanently moored in Bay State Quarry in Gloucester, Massachusetts. The facility is outfitted with a modern instrumentation suite, L20 amplifier, and reference projectors and hydrophones to perform a full spectrum of high and low frequency acoustic measurements. The building is climate controlled and useable year round as the surrounding water is kept ice free in winter.

Who We Are

Progeny started off as a small business that grew over a couple decades before a successful integration with General Dynamics Mission Systems. Our work has always focused on the warfighter, platform survivability and modernization.

We have a diverse portfolio of successful and ongoing projects across our many business areas. Several of these projects were awarded to Progeny through Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) contracts with the United States Government—many of which are continuing to grow production systems today.

Our headquarters are in Manassas, Virginia and we maintain many strategically located offices nationwide to better serve our customers. In addition to building improved defense systems, we highly value research and technology development. Our work is for the future—to make a better world for generations to come.
