GDNexus, a free online community of technology providers created by General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems, announced on March 10 that it has expanded its focus into the Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) domain.
GDNexus is a customer-centric Web portal that enables General Dynamics to take a customer’s validated mission requirements to the marketplace, providing companies with the opportunity to respond with relevant products, services and solutions. Initial ISR focus areas include analytics; signal, image and video processing; and visualization.
“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.”
GDNexus members can submit responses to requirements-driven Need Statements. 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.
All member submissions are reviewed through a comprehensive and objective process. After the review, a detailed assessment is provided to the customer that describes how the most compelling solution best supports the mission needs. Additionally, GDNexus provides members with assured protection of intellectual property and detailed feedback for every submission, helping members enhance their product strategy and align technology roadmaps.
With more than 50 years of experience delivering next-generation, end-to-end ISR solutions, General Dynamics has a unique understanding of the challenges customers face in their high-stake missions. This seasoned mission understanding coupled with GDNexus’ agile approach to acquisition and systems integration allows General Dynamics to continue to evolve its proven open business model, says the company in a March 10 news release.
