General Dynamics Mission Systems announced on May 4 that it has acquired the Electronics and Communications Division of Advatech Pacific that designs and manufactures tactical, cyber-secure and cross-domain products for the U.S. Department of Defense and international military customers. The TACDS and CenturionCDS products will join the company’s Cyber Security Product line, enhancing Fairfax, VA-based General Dynamics’ ability to deliver cyber-secure products that change the way threats are defeated across a diversified global market.
“For more than 50 years, General Dynamics has been at the cutting edge of cyber security and information assurance and the addition of Advatech Pacific’s cross-domain security products will give our customers a more secure and trusted information advantage,” said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics Mission Systems.
TACDS is a ruggedized, tactical cross-domain solution (CDS) certified by the National Security Agency providing much-needed capability and can be found on a variety of armored and ISR platforms operating at the tactical edge. CenturionCDS, a small form factor CDS weighing only eight ounces, is designed for dismounted military personnel.
