Benefits in the beyond

Expanding our potential in the unknown

Every advancement we make starts with a question: What if? What if we could fly above our atmosphere? Done. What if we could land on the moon? Done. But we aren't done. 400 space missions later, side-by-side with NASA and the U.S. military, our telecommunications technology is circling multiple planets. And it’s showing us sights no human has ever seen.

What if? It's a powerful question. And it’s always guiding what we do next.

General Dynamics Supports Artemis I Mission Around The Moon

General Dynamics built the S-Band Transponders and emergency radios for the Orion spacecraft. When Orion’s crew makes its first trip to space, our transponders will keep the astronauts connected to mission command centers on Earth.

Spaceborne Communications & Electronics

Near earth or deep space, we specialize in communications and electronics for all spacecraft. Discover our full suite of solutions.

Satellite Ground Systems

We design, build and manage ground-based systems that enable communications and control of satellite networks and spacecraft exploring the unknown.


When Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the moon, an S-Band Transponder built by General Dynamics was the only communications link the Apollo 11 Astronauts had to Earth. From Apollo 11 to the Next Giant Leap, explore how we support NASA Missions.

Satellite Mission Payloads

We engineer spaceflight-proven digital payloads for advanced missions requiring complex RF communications, signal processing and on-board software updates.

Space Operations & Engineering Services

Our experienced engineers work side-by-side with the U.S. Navy and NASA in mission operations centers to design and fly some of the world's most sophisticated satellites and spacecraft.
