General Dynamics To Deliver U.S. Army's Newest Tactical Ground Station Intelligence System

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., May 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Army awarded a contract to General Dynamics C4 Systems for 10 vehicle-mounted Tactical Ground Station (TGS) Lot D systems with an option for 11 additional systems. The TGS system is part of the Distributed Common Ground System-Army (DCGS-A), the Army's primary deployed system for posting, processing and distributing intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance  information in real time to intelligence analysts and commanders.  The order is valued at $31.5 million with all options exercised. The first of the new TGS systems is scheduled for delivery during the third quarter of 2013. 

DCGS-A provides Army analysts with access to more than 600 data sources and allows rapid collaboration through shared data access. The General Dynamics-built TGS-Lot D systems allow analysts to comb through millions of classified and unclassified records within minutes, providing commanders with status updates on persons of interest and imminent threats such as improvised explosive devices. The system is interoperable with other U.S. military, NATO and coalition ground systems, connecting intelligence analysts with information from national agencies, combatant commands, military intelligence brigades and tactical Army units.

"The TGS system finds the needle in the haystack and gives commanders an unprecedented ability to make informed decisions faster," said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics C4 Systems.

TGS systems have been widely deployed to forward operating bases worldwide, providing U.S. military and coalition soldiers with critical force protection intelligence that saves lives at the tactical edge.

The TGS Lot D procurement followed a full-and-open competition and includes TGS vehicle system integration, training materials, field service and support.  The new TGS systems will deliver superior information processing capability, secure network communications and collaboration with other intelligence resources worldwide.

General Dynamics has been supporting the Army's common ground station programs and mobile intelligence platforms since 1991. More information about General Dynamics' expertise in these mission critical systems is available at www.gdc4s.com/ArmyISR.

General Dynamics C4 Systems is a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD).  More information about General Dynamics can be found at www.gd.com.
