GroundAware® is a radar-based ground-based perimeter surveillance system. The GA 9000 series offers 3D radar capabilities for detecting, tracking, classifying, and responding to security threats posed by class 1 and 2 drones and other aircraft in low-altitude airspace, along with humans, animals, and vehicles on the ground. The GroundAware family of surveillance sensors can be integrated with a range of security systems, offers a layered security approach for deterrence and response, and monitors critical areas 24/7, in real-time, and in all-weather. It builds on the technology of the GA1360 and GA4120 models.
In May 2019 Dynetics, along with its partners, was awarded a USD130 million contract to build and test the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command’s (USASMDC/ARSTRAT) High Energy Laser Tactical Vehicle Demonstrator (HEL TVD) program, a 100-kilowatt class laser weapon system. Team members are Lockheed Martin, Rolls-Royce and MZA Associates. As the prime contractor, Dynetics will be responsible for final assembly and integration and testing of the system… Lockheed Martin (as the laser weapon system integrator, will provide the laser weapon subsystem, optimizing the performance of the laser module, power and cooling systems, and operator interfaces. Rolls-Royce Liberty Works will design the integrated power and thermal management system.
Enduring Shield is a mobile ground-based weapon system designed to acquire, track, engage and defeat unmanned aircraft systems, cruise missiles, and rockets, artillery and mortars.
Derived from Dynetics technology and modified around previous Army science and technology programs, the Enduring Shield solution has been bid to meet the Army’s Indirect Fire Protection Capability Increment 2 program needs. In creating Enduring Shield, Dynetics redesigned the launcher, created cost efficiencies, reduced complexity and refined capabilities.
Enduring Shield is capable of firing a range of missiles while, providing current and future growth capabilities. The system offers a 360-degree envelope with the ability to engage multiple targets simultaneously. It can be fully integrated with the Army’s Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System, and offers both cyber resiliency and electronic warfare protections.
