At General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada, we pride ourselves on stimulating innovation in the Canadian defence industry and the manufacturing sector of Southwestern Ontario. Innovation begins and ends with the needs of our customers, which is why we focus on collaboration. We work to understand customers’ needs, requirements and plans early in the procurement cycle. We constantly engage with our end users. This helps them understand, assess and select technologies and allows us to provide solutions that will bring them the greatest value.
General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada invests in capabilities through Independent Research and Development funds. We have an in-house ability to scan the world for the latest developments in a range of areas, such as modelling, simulation, robotics and industrial science. We assess emerging technologies to determine their impact on the mission of the future, allowing us to integrate groundbreaking technology into our platforms and provide mature capabilities as soon as they are ready to meet our customers’ needs.
Offering products with a high technological readiness not only increases overall functionality but lowers program risk and gets needed systems into the hands of our soldiers more rapidly.
We are firmly committed to incorporating lessons our customers have learned during past conflicts and to developing the right platform solution to meet their needs and protect them from next-generation threats.
That’s our Agenda of Innovation.
