General Dynamics Corporation operates as an aerospace and defense company worldwide. The company offers a portfolio of products and services in business aviation; combat vehicles, weapons systems, and munitions; communications and information technology (IT) systems and solutions; and shipbuilding. Business Groups The company operates through four business groups: Aerospace, Combat Systems, Information Systems and Technology, and Marine Systems. Aerospace The company’s Aerospace group designs, manufactures, and outfits a family of Gulfstream business-jet aircraft, provides aircraft services (including maintenance and repair work, fixed-based operations (FBO) and aircraft management services) and performs aircraft completions for aircraft produced by other original equipment manufacturers. The Gulfstream product line includes aircraft across a spectrum of price and performance options in the large- and mid-cabin business-jet market. The large-cabin models are manufactured at Gulfstream’s headquarters in Savannah, Georgia, while the mid-cabin models are constructed by a non-U.S. partner. All models are outfitted in the group’s U.S. facilities. In 2014, the company introduced three new large-cabin business jets, such as the G500, the G600, and the G650ER. The G500 and G600 are clean-sheet next-generation business jets that optimize the speed, wide-cabin comfort, efficiency and advanced safety technology of the aircraft. At Mach 0.85, the G500 could fly 5,000 nautical miles, and the G600 could fly 6,200 nautical miles. The G500 and G600 are expected to enter into service in 2018 and 2019, respectively. The G650ER is the extended-range sister-ship to the ultra-long range, ultra-large cabin G650. This new aircraft flies farther at faster speeds than any other business jet on the market and could travel 7,500 nautical miles at Mach 0.85. The first G650ER was delivered in 2014, ahead of the original 2015 estimate. In addition to the new aircraft models, current product improvement and development efforts include initiatives in advanced avionics, composites, renewable fuels, flight-control systems, acoustics, cabin technologies, and vision systems. 1 new innovation introduced with the G500 and G600 is the Symmetry Flight Deck that includes 10 touchscreens and active control sidesticks. The active control sidesticks allow the pilot and co-pilot to see and feel each other’s control inputs, improving their situational awareness and safety of the flight. The company has also introduced various service and support applications, including the PlaneBook application, which provides pilots easy and immediate digital access to critical flight information and aircraft-specific documents. In support of Gulfstream’s improving aircraft portfolio and international customer base, the company has invested in a multi-year facilities project at its Savannah campus, which is scheduled to continue through 2017. This expansion consists of constructing new facilities, including the completed purpose-built manufacturing facilities for production of the G500 and G600, and renovating existing infrastructure. This effort follows earlier projects that included a purpose-built G650 manufacturing facility, increased aircraft-service capacity, an improved customer sales and design center, and a paint facility. The company’s Aerospace group offers support of the approximately 2,500 Gulfstream aircraft in service with professionals located worldwide. The service network for Gulfstream aircraft continues to evolve to address the demands of the group’s improving international customer base. The company operates 11 company-owned service centers, maintains 15 authorized warranty centers and maintenance facilities on 6 continents, and offers on-call Gulfstream aircraft technicians ready to deploy for urgent customer-service requirements in the Americas. Jet Aviation augments the company’s Aerospace portfolio with completions (avionics, interior outfitting, and paint) for business-jet customers, as well as custom, complex completions of single- and double-aisle aircraft requiring advanced engineering, design and manufacturing capabiliti
