Aircraft Modernization: The Aurora
The Aurora Program is the mid-life upgrade of the CP140 Aurora aircraft operated by the Canadian Department of National Defence as a long-range maritime patrol platform for surface and undersea surveillance roles. General Dynamics has been contracted to develop the Data Management System (DMS) and Acoustic Suite subsystems. The latest release brings with it new capabilities in terms of Link 16, BLOS-WGS satcom and self-defence in the form of a Directed IR Countermeasures system (DIRCM).
Combat Vehicle Communications
General Dynamics was awarded the Land Command Support System Engineering and Integration Support Contract designed to ensure Canadian Forces continue to have access to advanced communications services critical to the flow of vital information in rapidly changing combat environments. Through the LEISC, General Dynamics supports the operation and maintenance of the currently deployed system at home and abroad and provides engineering services in support of periodic enhanced operational capability upgrades through the integration of new software and hardware elements.
Helicopter Modernization in Peru
General Dynamics will upgrade four SH-2G Super Seasprite helicopters with an integrated mission system to enhance the operational capability of the Peruvian Navy and its ability to meet the demands of modern maritime missions. Leveraging technology developed and delivered for Canada’s Maritime Helicopter Project, the updated Peruvian Seasprite helicopters will provide enhanced surveillance and search and rescue capabilities.
Through sponsorship of the EDGE Innovation Network, a unique collaborative environment designed to accelerate the development of new products and technology, General Dynamics is leading the charge to solve challenges in the defence and security industry.
