GD Canada to Supply Smart Displays for US Army MRAP Vehicles

Category: Contracts

Ottawa -- General Dynamics Canada received an order to supply more than 1,000 Smart Display Units (SDU) for installation in U.S. Army Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles.

The order represents the first use of General Dynamics Canada's technology on the MRAP platform, expanding the reach of the company's comprehensive suite of vehicle electronics currently embedded in the majority of the U.S. armoured vehicle fleet.

The MRAP vehicles' command, control, communications and computer, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) capabilities are being upgraded to support future growth and improve operational capability for the crews. General Dynamics Canada will provide the SD7310, its latest-generation smart display designed specifically for on-the-move operation in armoured fighting and tactical vehicles. The SD7310 integrates a 10.4" ruggedized computer and high-resolution touch-screen display into a single device, eliminating the need for a separate and dedicated computer processing unit. It is ideally suited to address the critical size, weight and power, and cost (SWAP-C) requirements of space-constrained vehicle platforms.

"The migration to next generation smart displays on combat vehicles provides warfighters with increased operational capability and improves their ability to communicate on the battlefield," said David Ibbetson, general manager of General Dynamics Canada. "Establishing this footprint on MRAP is strategically important to General Dynamics Canada and the future of our vehicle electronics business."
