General Dynamics Mission Systems

Cyber defense products: The following products, which protect information and networks against persistent threats and defend assets across all domains, will be on display:

  • TACLANE®, the world's most widely deployed Type 1 encryptor, continues to provide high-speed interoperable solutions to protect networks and information. The newest addition is the customizable TACLANE-FLEX (KG-175F), scalable to support 100 Mb/s to 1 Gb/s throughput and advanced features that support additional networking and security capability.
  • The next generation of encryptor manager, GEM One, is an enterprise-level remote management solution, enables users to easily configure, monitor and maintain a dispersed network of encryptors.
  • The ProtecD@R portfolio of standard and customizable data-at-rest encryption products provide confidence that stored information is protected if lost or stolen.
  • Sectéra® vIPer Universal Secure Phone is the only NSA-certified VoIP phone that protects information classified Top Secret/SCI and below over commercial wired networks.


4G Tactical Backbone: This display highlights the 4G Tactical Backbone that General Dynamics demonstrated at the recent Dawn Blitz exercise at Camp Pendleton, CA. By networking ships comprising an Amphibious Ready Group with a Marine Expeditionary Unit, the 4G Tactical Backbone enables tactical operations, including ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore planning, collaboration, and command and control activities, in a satellite-denied environment.


The Digital Modular Radio (DMR), AN/USC-61(C) provides multiple communication waveforms and multi-level information security for secure tactical and data transmissions aboard U.S. Navy ships and submarines. The latest DMR enhancement increases transmission rates while reducing static and other audio noise for crisp, clear voice communications. The four-channel DMR is the first software defined radio to become a communications standard for the U.S. Navy


General Dynamics NASSCO

Located in San Diego’s historic waterfront, General Dynamics NASSCO designs, builds and repairs ships for the U.S. Navy and commercial customers.

The Expeditionary Mobile Base (ESB’s) are optimized to support a variety of maritime based missions. The ESBs include a flight desk and are designed around four core capabilities: aviation facilities, berthing, equipment staging support, and command and control assets, will be on display.

 T-AO 205 Underway Replenishment Oiler will be on display.
