Business Segments Description


The Information Systems and Technology group is a leading integrator of secure communications systems and networks; command, control and intelligence systems; special purpose computing; and surveillance and reconnaissance systems for the U.S. military, the U.S. intelligence community and allied nations. The group supplies products, infrastructure and integration services that are used to gather, process and disseminate information rapidly and accurately. The group provides a full spectrum of information and communications technologies, including:

• Ruggedized computing and communications systems to support battlefield command-and-control and information processing;

• Specialized radio technologies that enable communication among strategic, theater and tactical assets;

• A variety of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) products, systems and support services for defense and intelligence agencies;

• Networking capabilities;

• Processors, communications devices and ground support for space operations; and

• Highly skilled technical personnel who frequently are embedded in military and intelligence operations around the world to support sophisticated national security systems.

The group is a key participant in transformational initiatives that use digital information technologies to provide defense assets with secure, on-demand access to mission-critical information, assisting warfighters to prevail on today’s battlefields as well as the battlefields of the future.

The Information Systems and Technology group was created through acquisitions starting in 1997. This growth reflects the increasing importance of digital, network-centric C4ISR and information-sharing technologies in the defense and intelligence communities. As the armed services seek information superiority to improve the agility, responsiveness, lethality and survivability of their forces, there are significant opportunities for companies that can provide robust combat platforms integrated with mission-critical information systems.

As a leading provider of tracked and wheeled armored combat vehicles, armament systems and ammunition in North America, Europe and the South Pacific, and the only producer of America’s main battle tanks, the Combat Systems group delivers key products and technologies to U.S. and allied military forces.

The group is one of the preferred suppliers of land and expeditionary combat system development, production and support around the world. Combat Systems conceives, engineers, manufactures and supports product lines that include a full spectrum of armored vehicles, trucks and light wheeled vehicles, bridges, suspensions, engines, transmissions, guns and ammunition handling systems, turret and turret-drive systems, reactive armor, chemical and biohazard detection products, ammunition and ordnance, and composite manufacturing.

The Marine Systems group has three shipyards with a long, proud history of providing the Navy with ships and submarines used to project the United States’ presence around the globe. Electric Boat manufactured the Navy’s first submarine more than 100 years ago. The company’s two other shipyards have demonstrated decades of innovation in developing destroyers and auxiliary ships for the Navy. Today, the group is on the cutting edge of shipbuilding as it participates in the design, development, manufacture and integration of the complex platforms that are central to Seapower 21, the Navy’s transformation vision.

With its experience and expertise in the development of surface, sub-surface and support platforms, Marine Systems is a key partner with the Navy. Marine Systems is leading the development of the new Virginia-class submarines, for which it received the largest submarine order in U.S. history. Construction work on the Virginia-class submarine is shared equally with the company’s teaming partner. The Virginia Class will provide the Navy a key platform with stealth, firepower and endurance, networked for communication with strategic and surface forces, in its pursuit of undersea superiority. Complementing this platform will be the Trident SSGN submarines, which the group is developing through the conversion of four Trident ballistic-missile submarines. The Trident SSGNs will be multi-mission submarines optimized for tactical strike and special operations support, key capabilities for future engagements around the world.

The group is the lead designer and producer of Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyers, one of the most advanced surface combatants in the world. It is also one of three competitors developing preliminary designs for the Navy’s Littoral Combat Ship (LCS). The LCS platform is intended for defense against terrorist swarm boats, mines and submarine threats in coastal areas.

Marine Systems also supports the far-reaching deployments of the Navy with its auxiliary and support ships, facilitating the efficient delivery of crucial supplies to U.S. forces around the world. It is leading the innovation of at-sea replenishment with the T-AKE program. T-AKE is the first new Navy combat logistics ship design in almost 20 years, using integrated electric-drive propulsion to deliver high performance and lower cost. The group also provides commercial ships, designing and manufacturing two roll-on/roll-off trailerships for cargo shipping and four double-hull oil tankers.

In addition, the group provides ship repair and other services to the Navy and commercial customers.

The shipbuilding industry is central to the Navy’s Seapower 21 efforts to transform into a more lethal, flexible, network-centric sea force of the future. The company believes Marine Systems’ leadership in the design, engineering, development and construction of naval platforms positions it for continued partnership with the Navy for years to come.

The Aerospace group designs, develops, manufactures, markets and supports a fleet of world-renowned business-jet aircraft, and provides aviation services for business-jet aircraft. The group was created in 1999 when the company acquired Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation. In 2001, the group added mid-size aircraft to its product offerings with the acquisition of Galaxy Aerospace Company, and formed a separate aviation services unit. Gulfstream has produced more than 1,400 aircraft for customers around the world since 1958.

In 2003, the group broadened its offering of business-jet aircraft by introducing a new aircraft and completing regulatory requirements for production of other airframes. In addition, the group expanded its aviation services operations to include the first Gulfstream-owned service center outside the United States through an acquisition at the London Luton Airport in the United Kingdom.

The new large-cabin, long-range Gulfstream G450, introduced in 2003, is an entire aircraft upgrade of the best-selling business jet in its class — the Gulfstream GIV/GIV-SP/G400. The G450 incorporates the most advanced avionics, cockpit displays, aircraft systems, aerodynamic enhancements and flight safety features, and retains the aesthetic design and signature windows that set Gulfstream aircraft apart from competing models. The new G450, which is expected to receive certification later this year, was designed for safety, performance, reliability, and passenger comfort and productivity.

The group received Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) type and production certification for the Gulfstream G550 model on August 14, 2003. The large-cabin, ultra-long-range G550 can fly as high as 51,000 feet and can travel at speeds up to Mach .885 and distances up to 6,750 nautical miles — the longest range available in a business jet. In February 2004, the National Aeronautic Association awarded its Collier Trophy to the G550, naming it “the greatest achievement in aeronautics in the United States with respect to improving performance, efficiency or safety of air or space vehicles” in 2003.

The Aerospace group also received type certification for its state-of-the-art PlaneView® cockpit, as well as the first production certification for the Gulfstream Enhanced Vision System (EVS). The Gulfstream EVS significantly improves pilot situational awareness during conditions of reduced visibility, both in flight and on the ground.

Additionally, in February 2004, the company further expanded its product line by introducing the Gulfstream G350 model. Very similar in design to the G450, the new aircraft delivers the same spacious cabin, advanced avionics and cockpit systems, exceptional performance and reliability, but with a slightly reduced range and a lower price.

Looking beyond the commercial market, the group continued efforts to offer its aircraft as platforms for ISR and other special mission applications by U.S. and allied governments. It sold four G550 aircraft to the Israeli Ministry of Defense for use as Compact Airborne Early Warning (CAEW) platforms, which will take full advantage of the G550’s capabilities, endurance, reliability and low operating cost. Additionally, the G450 was designated the platform of choice by one of the two competitors in a pending U.S. military procurement for special mission ISR applications.

The company formed General Dynamics Aviation Services in February 2001 to better meet the maintenance needs of a variety of the most popular business-jet aircraft available around the world. It serves a broad range of business-aircraft owners through maintenance centers in Minneapolis, Minnesota; Westfield, Massachusetts; West Palm Beach, Florida; Dallas, Texas; and Las Vegas, Nevada.

With an expanded product line, the company believes the Aerospace group is well positioned to take advantage of an encouraging market.

The Resources group includes two businesses: a coal mining operation and an aggregates operation that mines sand, stone and gravel for use in highway and building construction.
