Connect With Our Innovation Sourcing Network Team
It all starts here, with the intent to connect the best suppliers to our team and provide our customers with innovative sourcing solutions through our open supplier innovation ecosystem: Innovation Sourcing Network. Keeping our team up-to-date on your research and development could provide opportunities for co-development. This helps ensure that solutions are readily available as technology insertions or refreshes occur.
We like to engage early and often. Our expectation of our suppliers is that you can help influence proposed solutions while the approach is still forming. We do this by having a complete understanding of your capabilities allowing our team to align your competencies to our enterprise needs and partner as opportunities emerge.
Connecting with and participating in the Innovation Sourcing Network (ISN) is your first step to becoming a General Dynamics Mission Systems supplier.
