On Tuesday, defense contractor General Dynamics (NYSE:GD) announced that its Information Technology business unit has won three "task orders" from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, worth a combined $100 million over 28 months.

The orders announced today call for the IT unit to "plan, purchase, deliver and install medical and information technology equipment and furniture" to outfit new military hospitals at Fort Riley, Kan., and Fort Benning, Ga., with a combined floor space of 1.3 million square feet. GD will similarly outfit new clinics at Camps Carroll and Humphreys in South Korea.

All work is expected to be complete by early 2015.
