Company Overview

General Dynamics Mission Systems provides mission critical solutions to those who lead, serve and protect the world we live in. We are a technology integrator and original equipment manufacturer with deep domain expertise in land, sea, air, space and cyber.

The Brains Behind the Brawn
We build products and deliver technology for platforms like combat vehicles, submarines, aircraft, satellites, and advanced systems that can sense danger, quickly act on threats and share lifesaving information.

We have decades of experience in engineering systems that are designed to work, every time.

We make platforms smarter.

Our Mission

We provide smarter mission critical systems and products to defense, civil government, intelligence and cybersecurity customers, but that doesn’t tell our whole story.

Our VISION is a safer world through smarter platforms and missions.

When downed pilots are isolated in enemy territory, our radios give them a lifeline to call home.

When the intelligence agencies need to share crucial top-secret information, our products help them keep this information out of the wrong hands.

When sailors need to locate underwater mines, our technology enables them to find explosives with unmanned underwater vehicles.

By supporting smarter missions with smarter platforms, we help those who serve succeed and get home safely.

Our Ethos

General Dynamics’ ethos is our distinguishing moral nature. It informs everything we do.

Our employees are a community of people dedicated to this ethos. Each of us has an obligation to behave according to our values. In that way, we can ensure that we continue to be good stewards of the investments in us by our shareholders, customers, employees and communities, now and in the future.

Our ethos is rooted in five values: Honesty, Trust, Humanity, Alignment and Value Creation.

Our ethos undergirds our culture, our business model and our daily interactions. These values are a constant reminder of who we are and what we do.
