General Dynamics Land Systems
General Dynamics Land Systems will present at DSEI innovative products, highly integrated systems and other services and solutions that demonstrate an integrated force can face any challenge. The General Dynamics booth will include displays of and information about the following vehicles and systems:
Ajax: is a next-generation digital Armoured Fighting Vehicle (AFV), enabling soldiers to ‘See First, Decide First, Act First’ on the modern battlefield. The British Army, supported by General Dynamics, will be exhibiting a number of Ajax variants around the show-hall at DSEi, including:
- On the Army’s Land Platform Zone (LPZ) – an AJAX Crew Turret Trainer, where visitors can experience an illustrative training scenario, and a turreted AJAX demonstrating the automatic transfer of a target from another AJAX at the show.
- In the VIP Suite – two more turreted Ajax.
- In the Capital Suite – an ARES troop carrying variant
Foxhound: the vehicle of choice for the British Army’s light infantry and its most widely deployed armored vehicle. Foxhound delivers the highest level of survivability for a vehicle in its weight class. The utility flat-bed variant will be on the GD stand, illustrating the platform’s unique adaptability due to its modular design and a range of innovative ideas for the Mk2 Foxhound. The vehicle will also showcase General Dynamics Mission Systems’ MESHnet® V6.
TRX (Tracked Robot 10-Ton): this heavy Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) is a hybrid-electric drive, rubber-band tracked platform for a variety of mission fits, ranging from loitering munitions, to battlefield engineering and the ATGW ‘Overwatch’ variant exhibited on the GD stand.
General Dynamics Mission Systems
