• Graphics subsystems, single board computers, Ethernet switches;
• Order valued at £3.25/~$5.0 million.

GE today announced that it had secured an order for £3.25 million (~$5 million) from General Dynamics UK for subsystems required for the Demonstration Phase for the Scout Specialist Vehicle family of platforms for the British Army for which General Dynamics UK is currently on contract..

The Scout SV family of platforms will deliver a step change in ground-based ISTAR capability. It is a purpose designed ground-based intelligence platform with an array of high performance sensors, coupled with the latest (20 Gbits/second) Gigabit Ethernet intelligent open architecture. This will enable it to capture, analyze, manipulate and store over 6 TeraBytes of intelligence data, including a vast array of still and moving images, and to share this intelligence in real-, or very near real, time, depending on requirement. Thanks to this capability, Scout SV’s crew will be able to provide commanders with better decision-making support material than that currently available only from airborne ISTAR platforms or UAVs. Data will be readily passed to other secure C4I systems, including those of US and other NATO allies.

The GE subsystems comprise rugged processors derived from GE’s MAGIC1 and SBC624 Single Board Computer and rugged Ethernet switches derived from GE’s GBX460. They will provide information processing capability for Scout SV, manage on-vehicle networks, control data storage and drive the vehicle’s displays. GE has provided COTS-equivalent solutions to enable General Dynamics UK to begin software development immediately.

“This order from General Dynamics UK is a testimony to the strength of our commitment to, and operation in, the UK,” said Al DiLibero, President, Military & Aerospace Embedded Computing, GE Intelligent Platforms. “Our local presence meant that we were ideally placed to provide appropriate responsiveness to General Dynamics UK’s requirements, enabling us to design and propose an advanced, high performance solution that met all of General Dynamics UK’s criteria.”

The order was won after a rigorous audit by General Dynamics UK of GE Intelligent Platforms’ business processes, procedures and practices including product quality assurance, manufacturing management and supply chain management. GE’s financial strength, its substantial presence in the UK, and its experience in long term support of multi-year program deployments, together with GE’s ability to provide the best technical solution that responded precisely to General Dynamics UK’s requirements, were also factors in General Dynamics UK’s decision.
