The General Dynamics Mission Systems facility in Marion, Va., leads the industry in the development of little-known but highly essential aircraft components: Radomes. In airborne systems, radomes are protective shells covering radar, navigation and satellite system antennas mounted on the aircraft.
Technological innovations are redefining what’s possible on the battlefield. For the Marine Corps, advancements in communications technology allow for better coordination between air and ground units, and for Marine aviators to receive more information than ever before—all in real time.
At the AUSA 2017 Annual Meeting & Exposition, General Dynamics is showcasing its investments in the next technologies, capabilities and platforms built to support the U.S. Army and U.S. allies across all domains.
