General Dynamics C4 Systems, an integrator of secure communication and information systems and technology, is scheduled to open a new engineering design center in Broward County, FL, this month. The office will expand the company’s engineering and technology support of U.S. DOD and government-agency customers. In a separate announcement, fellow General Dynamics business unit General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems was selected by NASA to build the spacecraft for the Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM). Under the terms of the $116 million delivery order, General Dynamics will be responsible for the design and fabrication of the LDCM spacecraft bus, integration of the government-furnished instruments, satellite-level testing, on-orbit satellite check-out, and continuing on-orbit engineering support. General Dynamics will also provide a spacecraft/observatory simulator. Landsat will obtain data and imagery for use in agriculture, education, business, science, and government.
