DSA 2012 - GDUK Showcasing its Expertise for South East Asia

General Dynamics UK is demonstrating a full range of capabilities at DSA 2012 on Stand 4011. GDUK showcases capabilities in Network Enabled Communications (NEC) and C4I technology; its Armoured Fighting Vehicle (AFV) design, engineering, integration and refit expertise; and its solutions for the Security and Resilience requirements of Malaysia and other South East Asian nations such as Emergency Control Centres.

GDUK is demonstrating C4I systems integration technology that has made it the partner of choice for several Armed Forces wishing to digitise their communications from command-level to the soldier on the ground, including British, Dutch and Romanian forces. GDUK delivers bespoke solutions that meet differing levels of customer communications capability requirements, from land-based divisional capability up to force-wide multi-platform capability as well as maritime vessel and aircraft integration.

Currently developing the British Army’s Specialist Vehicle (SV), GDUK showcases the design, engineering and integration of the latest AFV technologies. Specific capabilities highlighted by the company in this area include:

  • A unique Electronic Architecture (EA) system, which delivers the benefits of weight reduction, increased space and easy plug-and-play power management for vehicles; 
  • Systems integration and vehicle refit expertise based on integrating over 15,000 new and legacy vehicles for the British Army. General Dynamics UK has refitted vehicles for the British, Dutch and Romanian Armed Forces including legacy vehicles such as the T-72 and T-92 tanks and BMP armoured vehicles. 

GDUK furthermore showcases a number of its technologies and capabilities that provide security and resilience in the event of manmade or natural disasters, including Critical National Infrastructure capabilities for protecting national borders, military bases, key national energy and transport assets; futuristic urban intelligence technology and deployable infrastructure systems for civil and military forces.
GDUK’s emergency control room approach is based around a fully integrated system that feeds into a suite of control screens which enable operators to react to scenarios in a rapid and controlled manner. The benefits of putting an emergency response centre in place, whether in a city, state or private organisation include the ability to make informed decisions,  coordinate action with a number of forces, improve response times, use resources efficiently, provide resilience during an incident and ensure the capability is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
