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