March lead
General Dynamics Mission Systems provides the design, development, manufacture and through-life support of advanced electronic solutions for the air, maritime and land markets.

With operations in Canada and the United Kingdom, General Dynamics Mission Systems ensures collaboration between General Dynamics C4 Systems businesses to provide the best solutions for the firm’s customers and the end-user.

Tactical communications information and avionics systems for the defence industry

General Dynamics Mission Systems offers a broad range of capabilities and products that place the right tools in the hands of its customers.

The firm’s world-leading capability offerings include tactical communications information systems, avionics systems, cryptographic key management infrastructure systems, and naval systems.

In Canada, General Dynamics Mission Systems provides technology-based electronic systems, systems integration, and in-service support to defence organisations and public security markets in Canada and overseas.

In the UK, General Dynamics Mission Systems has delivered Bowman, a tactical communications system integrating digital voice and data technology to provide secure radio, telephone, intercom and tactical internet services in a fully-integrated system to the British Armed Forces, since 2001.

The company will provide design, engineering and logistic support for Bowman for a further five-years following an announcement by Philip Dunne MP, Minister for defence equipment, support and technology, on 1 May 2014.

Engineering and integration support for communication systems

Capability delivered includes engineering and integration support for the current tactical communication system in-service with the Canadian Armed Forces, as well as a range of avionics systems that will be installed on the Canadian Aurora maritime patrol aircraft and Cyclones helicopters.

It is a leading provider of avionics systems onto the Eurofighter Typhoon, Tornado, AW101 Mk4 and AW159 Wildcat Helicopters; and it is currently undertaking significant research and development activities in the UK to maximise General Dynamics’ expertise in information assurance for additional markets, including the UK.

General Dynamics C4 Systems is a market-leader in the development and integration of communication and information systems technology. It provides solutions for customers around the world, and currently delivers, amongst others, the US Army warfighter information network-tactical (WIN-T) communication system.

Integrated marine’s communications and information systems for the Royal Netherland’s Navy

As well as its work in Canada and the UK, General Dynamics Mission Systems is also supplying the Royal Netherlands Navy with the new integrated marine’s communications and information system (NIMCIS).

NIMCIS is a programme to equip the Royal Netherlands Marine Corps (RNLMC) with the Bowman tactical communication system. It provides the RNLMC with a secure voice and data communications infrastructure capable of supporting a range of network-enabled command, control, communications, computing and intelligence systems.

EDGE® innovation facilities for rapid defence solutions

General Dynamics Mission Systems is aware that many of the most innovative businesses are the ones that are not familiar with or known to the traditional defence supply chain, and supports the EDGE initiative through its four EDGE Innovation facilities. Three of these facilities are in Canada and one is in the UK.

The EDGE initiative brings the niche capability of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and academia together with the EDGE Innovation Network’s expertise to deliver innovative and rapid solutions to meet customers’ requirements in the dynamic defence market.

There are also a further 11 EDGE Innovation facilities in the United States, and all facilities share information and knowledge to maximise the opportunities for collaboration between General Dynamics, SMEs and academia.

General Dynamics Mission Systems provides the UK Ministry of Defence with heavy and medium-weight containerised ground-based intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition, and reconnaissance (GB-ISTAR) solutions.
