General Dynamics UK Announces Opening of Armoured Fighting Vehicle Assembly, Integration and Testing Facility in South Wales

General Dynamics UK announced that it is opening a new Armoured Fighting Vehicle (AFV) Assembly, Integration and Testing (AIT) facility in South Wales.

General Dynamics UK Wins £390 Million Scout Specialist Vehicle Support Contract

General Dynamics UK has been awarded a £390 million contract by the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) to provide in-service support for the SCOUT Specialist Vehicle (SV) fleet until 2024. In addition, the company is opening a new Armoured Fighting Vehicle (AFV) Assembly, Integration and Testing (AIT) facility in South Wales. The contract is an extension of the in-service support that General Dynamics UK was contracted to provide for the SCOUT SV fleet until 2020, and it includes the provision of spares and repairs for all 589 platforms. The extended in-service support contract offers a cost-effective support solution that builds upon the SCOUT SV manufacturing phase, taking advantage of the production pricing of parts. With this facility investment, General Dynamics UK will undertake the assembly, integration and testing of 489 SCOUT Specialist Vehicle (SV) platforms. A further 100 platforms will undergo assembly, integration and testing at General Dynamics European Land Systems' facility in Seville, Spain. The vehicles are on schedule to be delivered to the British Army from 2017 through 2024. The new UK industrial capability, alongside the SCOUT SV extended in-service support contract, will support the creation of 250 new jobs in South Wales.

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.
