General Dynamics team to build next-gen aviation subsystems

  • 09-Oct-2012 05:01 EDT

A General Dynamics C4 Systems-led team received a contract from the U.S. Marine Corps to build up to four Engineering Development Models and nine Limited Deployment Units of the Processing and Display/Sensor Data Subsystem (PDS/SDS) for Increment 1, Phase 2 of the Common Aviation Command and Control System (CAC2S). When built and fully operational, the General Dynamics system will deliver a real-time picture of events taking place at sea, in the air, and on land during a mission, enabling faster, more informed decision making for Marine Corps commanders and their staffs. The PDS/SDS is the aviation command-and-control enabler for three mission-critical air command and control organizations that support Marines on the ground. The Tactical Air Command Center provides airspace management, the Direct Air Support Center controls air assault and other airborne operations, and the Tactical Air Operations Center performs air surveillance and controls air-to-air fighter and air defense. The General Dynamics-led team includes Fulton, MD-based Raytheon Solipsys; Smartronix Inc., of Stafford, VA; Ternion Corp., of Huntsville, AL; and Engility of San Diego.
