General Dynamics at AUSA 2020: Enabling the Army Now to Deploy, Fight and Win

GPS Source Assured Position, Navigation and Timing (APNT) and GPS Data Transmission: APNT and GPS signal retransmission solutions such as the U.S. Army's Mounted Assured PNT ( MAPS GEN-1) solution and the ECHO-II Smart Repeater provide critical timing and position data in GPS denied and degraded environments. MAPS GEN-1, based on the GPS Source SENTRySCOUT™ system, provides valid and APNT data, independent of the availability or integrity of GPS signals. The core of the MAPS GEN-1 system, the ED3 PNT Hub, is widely utilized in a variety of ground vehicle applications and is the lead platform for Military GPS User Equipment (MGUE) making the ED3 your path to M-Code. MAPS GEN-1 is currently being fielded by the Army and the next generation of APNT system is currently in development. When GPS indoor transmission is the primary concern, the ECHO-II is a reliable signal repeater ideal for ground vehicles, aircraft, and buildings when time-to-first-fix is critical.

Synthetic Training Environment: A next-generation extended reality live training solution, fresh from a recent user assessment at Ft. Benning, providing a software-based, tailorable and fully immersive training experience. Partnering with the best of industry to leverage commercial off-the-shelf technologies, our solution provides capabilities now and sets the foundation for future solutions supporting the Army's complex, multi-domain fight. 

Common Hardware Systems-5 (CHS-5):  Common Hardware Systems-5 (CHS-5) provides U.S. military customers rapid, affordable access to a wide range of commercial off-the-shelf computing and network equipment for tactical operations. General Dynamics provides technical assistance and logistics support for a wide range of services, from the rapid repair and replacement of equipment at strategically located Regional Support Centers, to the deployment of field service personnel to CHS-5 user locations worldwide. Available to all military services and across the federal government, CHS-5 contract is a "one stop shop" for tactical IT hardware solutions.

Next Generation Army Standard Family of Shelters (ASF): General Dynamics is concluding the development of the Next Generation Army Standard Family of Shelters (ASF) to address today's ever-changing operational requirements across the military. The shelters feature a modern, lightweight and durable design that will enable them to operate in most extreme environments. They can be quickly deployed on the ground or on the Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles, enabling the flexibility and mobility needed to quickly transport, deploy, and move the shelters. The shelters can be used for a number of applications including command posts, kitchens, maintenance shops and medical facilities. In addition, as the demand for larger Rigid Wall Shelter systems increases, General Dynamics has restarted production on the Modular Extendable Rigid Wall Shelter (MERWS). MERWS will provide increased shelter capacity for command and control centers as well as deployable debriefing conference rooms.

Advanced Vetronic Systems: General Dynamics Mission Systems–Canada's Advanced Vetronic Systems delivers a technological advantage through mission critical solutions for combat platforms. We have a global reputation for excellence in tactical computing and displays, fire control and turret stabilization, video distribution and processing, and tactical intercom and C2/C4ISR networking.  Our solutions and next generation systems coming online are grounded with our operationally proven pedigree and offer exponential leaps in technological capability and SWaPc improvements to support our warfighters in mission success.

TACLANE-Nano (KG-175N) Encryptor: Now NSA-certified, the TACLANE-Nano is the smallest, lightest and most power efficient HAIPE (High Assurance Internet Protocol Encryptor) available today. TACLANE-Nano is designed with the latest in crypto modernization technology to provide protection for voice, video and data classified up to Top Secret at 200 Mb/s aggregate throughput. It is Military Standard-810G ruggedized to withstand the rigors of any mobile environment from backpack to flyaway kit to deployable systems and platforms.

TACLANE-ES10 (KG-185A) E-Series Encryptor: The NEW TACLANE E-Series Ethernet Data Encryption (EDE) compliant encryptors provide high speed, high performance Layer 2 security. The TACLANE-ES10, the smallest, lightest, most power efficient 20 Gb EDE encryptor is designed to secure the enterprise backbone, data center and campus interconnectivity. Designed to and compliant with the latest EDE Specification, the TACLANE-ES10 is a cryptographic modernization replacement for legacy Ethernet (ESS), SONET and other link encryptors.

Persistent Systems GVR5 Dual-Band Wave Relay MANET: Designed in collaboration with General Dynamics Missions Systems, a leading provider of tactical vehicle communications systems, the GVR5 by Persistent Systems, LLC, is a dual-band mobile ad hoc networking (MANET) solution. Like other Wave Relay MANET devices from Persistent Systems, the GVR5 allows users to seamlessly share voice, video, text, sensor, and location data, all while on the move without the need for fixed infrastructure. The hardened GVR5 is specifically designed for integration into infantry fighting vehicles and similar platforms that have unique power systems, ballistic and gunfire shock requirements, and operate complex local area networks. The GVR5 can simultaneously operate on two frequency bands (L/S, L/C, or S/C - bands). It is an ideal solution for Automated-PACE (Primary, Alternate, Contingency, and Emergency) because it routes communications over the best available band. Additionally, the GVR5 allows dismounted users carrying MPU5 MANET devices to wirelessly connect to a vehicle's intercom system while in or near the vehicle. The GVR5 can be connected to SATCOM or LTE modems in the vehicle to extend BLOS connectivity to dismounted users – delivering global connectivity to the Wave Relay MANET.
