Back when I first started covering the military some dozen or so wars ago — in the late 1970s — General Dynamics was busy building the F-16 jet fighter and a plethora of other weapons. But it sold the F-16 line to Lockheed in 1993, and spun off its missile and space divisions, too. It seems to be moving into a different line of military work, as this GD press release Friday makes clear:

FAIRFAX, Va., Sept. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — General Dynamics Information Technology, a business unit of General Dynamics, has been awarded a five-year, $14.3 million task order by the TRICARE Management Activity (TMA) under the TRICARE Evaluation, Analysis and Management Support (TEAMS) contract…General Dynamics will provide program management services to the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center (DVBIC).
