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 Mission Systems participating in the Association of the U.S. Army’s 2021 Global Force Next, held virtually March 16-18, to highlight new, innovative, and affordable solutions that enable the Army’s cross-functional teams.
General Dynamics Mission Systems to Provide Federal Aviation Administration with Radios for Backup Emergency Air Traffic Control Communications
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has chosen General Dynamics Mission Systems to provide new URC-300E transceivers as part of their Emergency Transceiver Replacement (ETR) program.
Two General Dynamics Small Deep Space Transponders and a power amplifier will help NASA’s Perseverance Rover explore Mars. The transponders are the rover’s communications link to NASA, transmitting data and images over 100 million miles back to Earth.
