General Dynamics Mission Systems–Canada has established itself as one of the most innovative defence and security technology companies in the country.

Its core business groups – Land Com­mu­nications, Airborne Mission Systems, Underwater Warfare and Cyber Solutions – provide advanced thinking, design expertise, and implementation know-how that helps equip military and first responders with leading-edge hardware, software and systems.  

But that’s just the beginning. General Dynamics Mission Systems, a global company with more than 100 facilities worldwide, has taken on the toughest security and technology challenge facing our nation (and our world) by developing and delivering products and systems that save lives.
“We’re proud to help drive innovation, boost employment and support the transfer of technological know-how,” says David Ibbetson, Vice President and General Manager of General Dynamics Mission Systems–International, “and this includes mission-critical C4ISR solutions across the land, sea, air, space and cyber domains.” The company actively engages small and medium enterprises – helping to build their businesses while continuing to invest in research and development – for both domestic and export purposes.

With a strong mandate to contribute to the community, General Dynamics has committed significant funding to support ill and injured soldiers through Canada Army Run; to promote and advance the careers of women through its patron sponsorship of Women in Defence & Security; to encourage youth interest in STEM by sponsoring FIRST Robotics teams; to help make a difference in their communities through its annual United Way campaign; and to champion veterans and first responders through its support of Team Rubicon Canada.

Ultimately, the company believes its global success stems primarily from its strong system engineering experience, ongoing investment in research and development, collaboration with commercial and military systems industry leaders, and customer service.

“At the core of everything that General Dynamics Mission Systems–Canada does, is a commitment to innovation that suffuses the way we think about, design and develop solutions. We care about our customers and have earned their confidence,” says Ibbetson. “Our employees are dedicated to meeting the needs of the men and women of the Canadian Armed Forces, first responders and armed forces around the world.”
