Pentagon’s Multi-Million Dollar Contract Involves Adelanto Company, General Dynamics

According to the Victorville Daily Press, August 30, 2015, a multi-million dollar contract from the federal government for a new air-delivered bunker-buster bomb capable of penetrating six feet of reinforced concrete will include technology developed in the High Desert. The Pentagon recently awarded the $7.2 million contract to General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems Aerospace, which furthers the development of a new munitions concept, the aerospace industry news website FlightGlobal.com reported. The Pentagon tapped General Dynamics to develop and test the fireball HAMMER (Heated And Mobile Munitions Employing Rockets) that is designed to destroy chemical and biological weapons by littering an underground bunker or weapons storage facility with hundreds of rocket-propelled fireballs designed to incinerate chemical and biological agents at temperatures in excess of 1,000 degrees.
