The Independence-variant Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) is the U.S. Navy’s next generation combat ship class delivering the speed, flexibility and mission adaptability for the Navy to operate in littoral waters. The core mission system for the Independence-variant is built on the General Dynamics Mission Systems open architecture computing infrastructure (OPEN CI) -- a technical infrastructure that is not bound by proprietary systems.

Maritime & Strategic Systems

The world's most powerful military depends on mission critical systems and technology from General Dynamics Mission Systems. We specialize in delivering the high-assurance, ruggedized command, control and communications systems servicemen and women need to get the job done and come home safely.

Surface Systems

At General Dynamics, our proven approach of combining open architecture with an open business model allows us to provide the military with the most capable, affordable and flexible solutions. With OPEN CI, our state-of-the-art surface systems serve as the technology backbone for the U.S. Navy's next generation of surface ships, including the Independence-variant Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) and the Expeditionary Fast Transport (EPF).

Bluefin Robotics Unmanned Undersea Vehicles

Bluefin Robotics Unmanned and Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) provide undersea capabilities for defense, scientific and maritime customers worldwide. Bluefin Robotics offers a range of systems and configurations including over 70 different sensors on over 80 vehicles that can operate in the open ocean and in constrained waterways. Our core AUV and UUV product line includes the Bluefin SandSharkBluefin-9, Bluefin-12Bluefin-21, and subsea batteries.  

Bluefin Robotics Unmanned Undersea Vehicles

The Bluefin SandShark is a one-person-portable, low-cost unmanned autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) designed to leverage today’s miniaturized sensors and small enough to be carried in a backpack.

Airborne Systems

General Dynamics Aircraft Mission Computers are the nerve center of the Navy’s F/A - 18 Super Hornet and the Marine Corps’ AV-8B Harrier. Our mission computers provide aviators with the ability to see and control the battlefield with the advanced situational awareness and combat systems control that is necessary to complete their missions.
