General Dynamics has expanded its GDNexus, a free, online community of technology providers, into the ISR sphere.
GDNexus, created by General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems, allows General Dynamics to put out a customer's requirements in the marketplace and obtain responses from potential vendors. "With each Need Statement linked to a customer's specific mission need, GDNexus creates new business opportunities for companies that might not have access to the government or insight into the mission," said a General Dynamics news release.
For ISR, GDNexus will initially focus on analytics, visualization, and signal, image and video processing. "Our goal is to find relevant technologies to quickly meet our customers' dynamic mission requirements," said Jay Mork, chief technology officer at General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems. "By opening up the GDNexus aperture to include ISR, we help our customers access new and existing technology, as we continue to drive innovation into our solutions to enhance mission capabilities, increase cost savings and reduce acquisition risk."
