General Dynamics UK Completes Critical Design Review for SCOUT Reconnaissance Variant

General Dynamics UK has successfully completed the Critical Design Review for the SCOUT Reconnaissance variant, as part of the SCOUT Specialist Vehicle programme. The completion of the SCOUT Reconnaissance variant CDR is a significant marker in the SCOUT SV programme, with the first SCOUT Reconnaissance pre-production prototype to be completed later 2015. The CDR covered the fully-integrated SCOUT Reconnaissance platform, including the platform hull design, the Lockheed Martin UK-developed turret, Electronic Architecture, onboard software solutions, sub-systems and variant-specific products, such as the Primary Sight. In service, the SCOUT Reconnaissance variant will provide best-in-class protection and survivability, reliability and mobility and all-weather Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Recognition (ISTAR) capabilities. It will enable the soldier to be at the point of collection of accurate all-weather commander information within a network-enabled, fully-digitized platform. The SCOUT Reconnaissance variant CDR is the final variant-specific CDR to be completed ahead of the pending SCOUT SV System CDR, which will examine all aspects of each SCOUT SV platforms under a single review. The range of SCOUT SV variants will allow the British Army to conduct sustained, expeditionary, full-spectrum and network-enabled operations with a reduced logistics footprint. SCOUT SV can operate in combined-arms and multinational situations across a wide-range of future operating environments.

General Dynamics Receives Contract from AgustaWestland

General Dynamics UK has received a contract from AgustaWestland to provide mission system equipment for UK AW101 Merlin Mk4/4a helicopters. This contract is part of the Merlin Life Sustainment Programme (MLSP), which was awarded to AgustaWestland by the UK Ministry of Defence in January 2014 to convert 25 AW101 Merlin helicopters for maritime operations. The mission system equipment that will be delivered by General Dynamics UK includes a Tactical Processing System and Secure Data Recorder, which will provide increased performance and capability onboard the helicopters. The company's Tactical Processing System is currently installed on the UK and export variants of the AgustaWestland AW159 Lynx Wildcat helicopter. The Secure Data Recorder provides an accredited security solution that allows a user operating in unfriendly environments to safely record and store data for further use. Qualified for manned and unmanned platforms operating in the air, on land and in maritime environments, the Secure Data Recorder enables the transfer of data on and off all types of platforms using an easily inserted encrypted memory cartridge. Typical data transfers include the uploading of mission and digital map data, along with the extraction of recorded data such as radar and electro-optical sensors, voice and data communications and tactical mission data.
