Always On, Always Connected
For the soldier making a call from the mountains, the first responder receiving data in the aftermath of a disaster, the boater in distress sending his location to the Coast Guard, and the astronaut orbiting the earth receiving a message from mission control, the ability to communicate is crucial. Across vast distances, through dangerous terrain, and in any domain, we provide secure voice and data communications when the mission depends on it.
Every day around the globe, our radios ensure planes land safely, isolated personnel are found, soldiers communicate securely and first responders have the communications they need to go where no one else can.
Our spaceborne communications products enable spacecraft to transmit scientific data from the surface of a distant planet, receive GPS signals to precisely locate itself in space, and maintain the critical link that allows astronauts to talk to mission control.
Disruptive Radio Technologies
In today’s modern battlefield, the U.S. military needs to maintain networked communications in and under contested and congested electromagnetic spectrum environments. They need non-traditional waveforms and technologies that provide anti-jam, low probability of intercept, and low probability of detection. To respond to these needs, our experts build new radios and waveforms and quickly get them into the hands of soldiers.
General Dynamics has built every nose radome for the more than 4,600 F-16 aircraft produced and has designed and built over 1,500 wideband nose radomes to support AESA radars on aircraft for the US military including the F-15, F/A-18 and F-35.
Quantum may hold the keys to inventing the communications systems of the future. We have some of the brightest minds in the country researching how to harness the power of Quantum physics to build new military communication systems.
General Dynamics is delivering electronic components and systems to help the Starliner fly safely into orbit and autonomously rendezvous and dock with the International Space Station, then return safely to the Earth.
