Information on the future of Vehicle Electronic Architecture, including Tactical Networking and Routing, Power and Video Distribution, and Mission Computing and Displays will be available.

Cyber Defense Products will also be showcased, including the Sectéra vIPer secure desktop phone and TACLANE® family of Type 1 encryptors.Visitors to the booth can also learn more about the Multilevel Information Sharing & Security for Joint and Coalition Operations Solution, a trusted, cross domain collaboration and information sharing platform that securely connects multiple coalitions of interest and protects the security and integrity of sensitive/classified data across multiple security boundaries and distributed user communities. Users can do all of this on a single workstation.In addition, visitors can experience:

  • The Digital Modular Radio (DMR) system, AN/USC-61(C), is the first secure software-defined radio capability to have become a communications system standard for the U.S. Military. The 4-channel DMR supports multiple NATO, coalition and U.S. waveforms.
  • Fortress® Wireless Mesh: The Fortress family of wireless mesh points enable rapid establishment of a scalable and mobile self-forming, self-healing, path-optimized secure wireless network where no infrastructure exists.
  • Air Traffic Control (ATC) Radios: Trusted globally the CM-300/350v2 ATC radios provide sharp, clear communications, system interoperability, and consistent, reliable long-term performance to ensure that planes land safely.
  • Stores Management Systems (SMS): The SMS supports a wide range of MIL Std 1760 and legacy weapons and stores, including Sea Venom and Brimstone, for all modes of operation (air-air, air-ground, air-surface, air-sub surface). 
Visitors to the booth can also discuss a variety of General Dynamics Mission Systems' capabilities, including Integrated Mission Systems, like the two variants developed for the upgraded Royal Canadian Air Force Aurora Long Range/Multi-Mission aircraft (P-3) and Cyclone Maritime Helicopter (H-92), in addition to Tactical Data Link - Link 11/16/22 data processing capabilities for rotary and fixed wing aircraft
