General Dynamics won a United States Navy contract to restore and maintain a satellite system simulator at the Naval Postgraduate School, Spacecraft Research and Design Center / Adaptive Optics Center of Excellence in Monterey, California. The simulator is a model of a Navy Fleet Satellite (FLTSAT) communications satellite that will help students hone their skills in managing the technical aspects of space systems including satellite command, control and communications and troubleshooting satellite and constellation anomalies.

General Dynamics supports instructors teaching a wide range of space-related topics to Naval Postgraduate School students from across the U.S. Department of Defense. The academic programs include mastery of the technical aspects of space systems including design, development, installation and maintenance of spacecraft, space payloads, supporting earth stations, terminals and command, control and communications connectivity.
