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.
Every day, the General Dynamics team pushes the extreme edges of engineering and science to imagine and create the next generation of space missions to advance scientific discovery and support national defense.
Manny Mora, Vice President & General Manager, Space & Intelligence Systems
Near earth or deep space, we specialize in communications and electronics for all spacecraft. Discover our full suite of solutions.
We design, build and manage ground-based systems that enable communications and control of satellite networks and spacecraft exploring the unknown.
Delivering The Mission - From Space To Earth
From designing the communication transponders that transmitted Neil Armstrong's first words from the Moon...
To building next-generation ground systems responsible for managing the day-to-day mission and operations of satellite networks...
We're committed to delivering technology that enables the national security, intelligence and scientific missions of today and tomorrow.
We engineer spaceflight-proven digital payloads for advanced missions requiring complex RF communications, signal processing and on-board software updates.
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.
Radio Telescopes to Deep Space Networks
Astronomers and NASA's deep space explorers trust SATCOM Technologies expertise and precision manufacturing to design and build the most advanced antennas for exploration and space communications.
We build reliable, high-speed encryptors which ensure that critical data from satellites and spacecraft doesn’t fall into the wrong hands.
From highly precise beryllium machining to Iridium communications services.
General Dynamics Completes Integration Milestone for NASA Space Network Ground System Sustainment Program
The Space Network Ground Segment Sustainment (SGSS) team also successfully completed initial installation testing of new Space Ground Link and Management and Control capabilities essential for future Space Network operations.
General Dynamics Satellite Simulator Trains Space Mission Operators from across the U.S. Department of Defense
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – General Dynamics Mission Systems received a contract from the U.S. Navy to restore and maintain a satellite system simulator for students at the Naval Postgraduate School, Spacecraft Research and Design Center/ Adaptive Optics Center of Excellence.
Our relationship with space has changed dramatically since the first words were heard from the Moon in 1969. Space above Earth is now a complex array of more than 2,200 satellites, not including space debris made up of spent rocket boosters, dead satellites and a wrench or two from space walks and repairs. And, more satellites, large and small, are launching all the time.
