General Dynamics Mission Systems–Canada and CDW Canada have been awarded a contract to provide an integrated situational awareness solution to the Canadian Department of National Defence (CDND).
Under the multi-year contract, General Dynamics and CDW will provide the Network Command and Control Integrated Situational Awareness Capability (Net C2 ISAC) to help the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) with effective command and control operations. This will enable CAF to monitor IT services which are critical to operational effectiveness.
The Net C2 ISAC program supports further advancement in Canadian strategic defense capability in Cyber Resilience and Artificial Intelligence through economic development investments by General Dynamics.
“As network topologies grow more complex, more integrated, and more influenced by emerging operational needs, our contribution to Net C2 ISAC will ensure that commanders benefit from coherent, consistent, real-time, integrated and relevant access to the health of their IT services,” said Joel Houde, Vice President and General Manager, General Dynamics Mission Systems–International. “As a trusted capability provider with an extensive understanding of cyber resilience, multi-layer network security and interoperability, we look forward to working with CDW, and continuing our legacy of helping the CAF achieve their operational requirements.”
“We are thrilled to work alongside General Dynamics to provide the CAF with Net C2 ISAC to take its defense operations and integrated situational awareness to the next level,” said Ginette Adragna, Vice President and General Manager, CDW Canada. “From here on out, commanders can help fulfill CAF’s mandates knowing they will be supported in real-time through full access to their IT services.”
