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.
The Backbone of the U.S. Army's Tactical Network Is WIN-T
With the General Dynamics-built Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T), commanders can communicate on-the-move and soldiers can have their voices heard, their texts received, and their location displayed on a map.
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.
Fortress LTE and wireless mesh solutions provide end-to-end high speed access to critical communications for those who need to be always on, and always connected like first responders, government agencies, military personnel and private networks for commercial customers.
Our spaceborne communications products and technology enable spacecraft to transmit scientific data from the surface of a distant planet, receive GPS signals to precisely locate itself in the vastness of space, and maintain the critical link that allows astronauts to talk to mission control.
Today's first responders need instant access to secure voice and data networks to communicate critical information anytime, anywhere. With General Dynamics' 4G LTE technology, first responders have reliable, high-speed access to voice, video and data when they need it, at their fingertips.
Over the past 60 years, General Dynamics has built communications systems and electronics for Apollo, Voyager and more than 400 other space missions. Today, our engineers are building on that legacy by designing systems for the Orion spacecraft which will take the next generation of astronauts to the Moon and Mars. Politico's Bryan Bender sat down with the Chris Brady, President of General Dynamics Mission Systems, at our Scottsdale, AZ facility — where the Apollo S-Band Transponder was built — to talk about the past and future of space communications.
Harnessing the power of quantum physics for communications and sensing first theorized by Albert Einstein in the 1930s will allow General Dynamics to offer revolutionary real-world applications that could render conventional secure systems obsolete within the next decade.
General Dynamics Mission Systems is excited to feature the FirstRunner, a new Compact Rapid Deployable (CRD) 4G LTE communications system for the first responder customer owned and maintained (COAM) market.
