General Dynamics Mission Systems was formed in January 2015 when General Dynamics combined the company's C4 Systems and Advanced Information Systems.[5] General Dynamics C4 Systems was originally owned by GTE and operated as GTE Government Systems. General Dynamics acquired GTE Government Systems in 1999.[6]

In 2001, as the General Dynamics Decision Systems business unit, General Dynamics purchased Motorola integrated Information Systems Group (IISG) for $825 million.[7]

Products and Programs[edit]

WIN-T: Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) is the Army's tactical communications system.[8] General Dynamics is the Army's prime contractor for WIN-T,[9] which is part of General Dynamics Mission Systems' tactical voice and data communications systems, The Soldier's Network.[10] Increment 1, now fully deployed, began fielding in 2004 and completed fielding in 2012.[11] In November 2007, General Dynamics announced a $78 million order on an indefinite delivery and quantity contract for WIN-T Increment 1.[12] In April 2015, General Dynamics Mission Systems was awarded a $36 million army contract for maintenance and repair of all products related to Increment 1.[13] In June 2015, General Dynamics secured a contract for Increment 2, valued at $219 million.[14] Increment 2 includes additional capabilities, such as mobile broadband. Increment 1 and 2 equipment will remain in the field at the battalion and company levels as Increment 3 is completed.[15]
