General Dynamics is one of Canada's leading defence systems integrators with extensive experience in handling multi-year projects of national significance, scope and scale. At DEFSEC, General Dynamics Canada will showcase its technology-based electronic systems, systems integration and in-service support offerings, with particular emphasis on new features and capabilities of its underwater ISR technology, including anti-submarine warfare and torpedo detection.

Underwater Warfare Sonar Processing and Display Software Suite - New capabilities in anti-submarine warfare and torpedo detection will be demonstrated on a naval console running General Dynamics Canada's latest software, which integrates towed arrays, hull-mounted sensors and sonobuoys to provide a clear and comprehensive picture of underwater threats.

In-Service Support - Members of the In-Service Support team will be available to discuss their integrated engineering approach and their expertise designing comprehensive support systems for the maintenance of platforms throughout their in-service life.

C-27J Canadian Spartan Team - Alenia Aermacchi's C-27J Spartan is one of the most capable, cost-effective, and uncompromising search and rescue aircraft available today. General Dynamics Canada is teamed with Alenia Aermacchi, Provincial Aerospace and DRS Canada in pursuit of the Canadian Fixed Wing Search and Rescue project. Representatives from the team will be onsite to provide information on the C-27J Spartan.

CoCommand - General Dynamics Canada will showcase CoCommand, a multi-domain command and control system that enables quick and informed decision-making across separate organizations previously encumbered by disparate communications systems.

The EDGE® Innovation Centre will also be highlighted. The EDGE Innovation Centre in Ottawa is part of the EDGE Innovation Network, a unique collaborative environment designed to accelerate the development of new products and technology to solve challenges in the defence and security industry. A Naval In-Service Support leadership discussion will be held at the EDGE in October. The discussion will address key challenges in extending both the service-life and the spectrum of capabilities for the Canadian Navy using a collaborative approach to drive innovation and accelerate technology development. More information on the EDGE Innovation Centre and this event will be available at the booth.
