FAIRFAX, Va. – General Dynamics Mission Systems makes its debut as General Dynamics' newest business unit at the Surface Navy Association's (SNA) 27(th) National Symposium. General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems and General Dynamics C4 Systems combined to form General Dynamics Mission Systems on January 1, 2015.
"This restructuring has allowed us to create a real powerhouse. We are stronger together and offer a more robust portfolio of products, services and solutions that help customers successfully execute their missions in today's dynamic environment," said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics Mission Systems. "Our exhibits at SNA highlight our collective capabilities from which the U.S. Navy will benefit, including unsurpassed technology, innovation and mission understanding."
General Dynamics Mission Systems will deliver greater capability more efficiently. With a fuller set of synergistic offerings, the company will support the Navy in its efforts to maintain, train and equip combat-ready Naval forces. Examples of the company's Navy portfolio include:
-- As the ship systems integrator for both the Joint High Speed Vessel
(JHSV) and Independence-variant Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) programs,
General Dynamics Mission Systems is responsible for the design,
integration and testing of the navigation systems, C4I and aviation
systems. The company's open architecture computing infrastructure (OPEN
CI) serves as the technology backbone for the core mission systems for
both platforms. With its plug and play integration for ship systems and
mission modules, OPEN CI allows for platform flexibility and quick
-- Leveraging its open architecture approach, General Dynamics supports
prime contractor Raytheon with the development of a scalable system that
reduces space, weight and energy demands in support of the
next-generation integrated Air and Missile Defense Radar (AMDR).
-- General Dynamics Mission Systems was recently awarded a contract to
build and test a complete Consolidated Afloat Networks and Enterprise
System (CANES) network intended for fielding on a U.S. Navy Arleigh
-- The Digital Modular Radio (DMR) is interoperable with the Navy's Mobile
User Objective System (MUOS) satellite communications system and
protects sensitive Navy mission information to the Top Secret level and
below. DMR radios are aboard Navy surface and subsurface vessels and
fixed-site locations throughout the Navy and other U.S. Department of
-- In October 2014, General Dynamics delivered the 100,000th TACLANE-Micro
(KG-175D) in-line network encryptor to the Navy's Space and Naval
Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR). The TACLINE-Micro provides cyber
defense for networks, is optimized for both tactical and strategic
environments, and is high speed, compact and mobile.
-- The Common Display System (CDS) product family consists of a series of
information-display configurations based on standardized,
interchangeable components that can be implemented across all classes of
-- Common Network Interface (CNI) offers functional system improvements for
LHA and LHD class ships, allowing these ships to interoperate more
effectively with other modern ships in the fleet. CNI provides ship
commanders with all of the available tactical and situational awareness
information by integrating the intelligence, surveillance and
reconnaissance information with local tactical pictures.
-- Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program (SEWIP), a spiral-block
development program, provides an immediate improvement to the legacy
surface ship electronic warfare (EW) detection and countermeasures
