Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The U.S. Defense Department announced multi-million dollar contracts for three companies in San Diego County Wednesday.

The largest, worth $104.8 million, is a modification to a previously awarded agreement with National Steel and Shipbuilding to refurbish the dock landing ship USS Comstock. NASSCO workers will inspect, repair and modernize all of the vessel's systems, and are expected to be finished in May next year.

The deal was awarded by Navy's Southwest Region Maintenance Center.

Ostendo Technologies Inc. of Carlsbad was awarded $58.3 million to provide a prototype of a holographic three-dimensional computer workstation by October 2016. The Air Force Research Laboratory in Ohio issued the contract.

General Atomics won a $44.6 million contract from the Naval Air Systems Command in Patuxent River, Md., to research and develop an electromagnetic system to launch planes from aircraft carriers. The contract runs through April 2016.
