- Two major platforms will be showcased in the Land Systems booth: M1A2 SEP V3 tank and the Stryker DVH.
- WIN-T Increment 2 lighter, highly mobile tactical operations center vehicle
- Flyer 72 vehicle in two configurations and the Flyer 60, vehicles we are delivering to USSOCOM for the ITV and GMV 1.1 programs
General Dynamics Land Systems: Booth 803
General Dynamics Land Systems will be displaying the most technologically advanced digital tank, the M1A2 SEP V3, which includes upgrades to power generation, increased survivability, fuel savings and network improvements. The M1A2 SEP V3 maximizes the fighting ability of the tank on today’s battlefield while preparing the platform for tomorrow’s challenges.
The Stryker DVH Engineering Change Proposal (ECP) Vehicle will also be on display, showcasing four major upgrades across power generation, featuring smart displays and a new digital backbone and an optimized driveline to increase mobility.
General Dynamics Land Systems will also have a model of its latest AJAX armoured fighting vehicle prototype in the booth.
General Dynamics Mission Systems: Booth 825
WIN-T Increment 2: Approved for full-rate production in June 2015, WIN-T Increment 2 delivers the soldier’s network and mobile mission command capability in a lighter, more vehicle design. Visitors will see many examples of how we are working with the Army to further simplify the network while reducing the size, weight and power of the network which translates directly to reduced network cost. Subject matter experts will be available to discuss advancements in the network’s overall cyber resiliency.
Cyber-defense products: A trusted provider of cyber-defense technologies, products and systems for more than 50 years, General Dynamics continues to be a center of excellence in hardening the Army’s networks and the information moving across government networks. Featured cyber-defense products displayed in the booth include Sectéra® vIPer™ Universal Secure Phone, TACLANE®-1G (KG-175G) Network Encryptor and GEM X™ Universal Encryptor Manager.
General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems: Booth 815
The Flyer Family of Lightweight, Tactical Vehicles: Highly mobile, fully modular, Internal and External Air Transport (IAT) compliant, military grade, mission-ready vehicles. Built for speed, mobility and maneuverability, the Flyer vehicles allow operators to access previously denied terrain. Their low center of gravity makes them extremely maneuverable while maintaining a high degree of stability when traversing challenging terrain. These versatile vehicles can be reconfigured to support multiple crew and mission profiles, from three to nine operators with full payload and mission profile kits. General Dynamics is delivering the Flyer 60 and Flyer 72 to USSOCOM for the ITV and GMV 1.1 programs.
The Flyer 72 will be shown in two configurations: One six-man configuration with 30mm lightweight machine gun mounted on the 360º gun ring with a payload capacity of more than 5,000 pounds and internally transportable in a CH-47. The second Flyer 72 will be shown in the Army GMV (formerly the ULCV) configuration that carries a crew of nine and can be internally transported in a CH-47 or underslung from a UH-60 helicopter. Both variants can be equipped with C4ISR and a modular KE and underbody blast armor kit.
- The Flyer 60 will be shown in a five-man configuration with our lightweight .50 cal GAU-19/B Gatling gun. The Flyer 60 has a payload capacity of 4,500 pounds while being internally transported in V-22 and CH-47 or underslung on a UH-60 helicopter. It can be modified to carry up to four litter patients under a ROPS and provides mounting for a variety weapon platforms.
120mm Advanced Multipurpose (AMP) Tank Cartridge: A revolutionary advancement in 120mm tank ammunition technology designed to provide the warfighter with the capability to defeat multiple targets with a single round, to include: Anti-Tank Guided Missiles crews, Dismounted Infantry, Light Armor Targets, Reinforced Concrete Walls and Earth & Timber Bunkers. The AMP cartridge is capable of multiple modes of operation, effectively replacing several types of munitions by chambering a single munition that can be fired effectively to defeat multiple target types.
Next Generation Fire Control System (NGFCS) mounted on 40mm MK-19 Grenade Machine Gun: Featuring an interactive demonstration of the integrated thermal camera and color day cameras, the NGFCS provides the operator the ability to detect, recognize and identify targets at greater ranges and varying battlefield conditions. It provides the operator with a highly accurate disturbed reticle solution with high hit probability at extended ranges. The system is designed and integrated with the MK47 and MK19 40mm grenade machine guns as well as the M2/M2A1 .50 caliber machine gun.
GAU-19/B .50 caliber Gatling Gun: Providing lightweight, lethal firepower to a variety of land, air and sea platforms, the GAU-19/B is a lighter, more efficient mechanical design, with the same reliability and target saturation as the well-known GAU-19/A. At 106lbs, the externally powered, three-barrel is neutral to that of a single barrel .50 cal machine gun and has a rate of fie of 1300 rounds per minute. The Gatling gun is an ideal weapon for utility, scout and attack helicopters, providing self-defense and light-attack capabilities in scenarios where tactical egress is essential.
