General Dynamics Land Systems to Participate in US Army’s Annual Meeting & Exposition 2022

General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS) will be among the exhibitors at the Association of the U.S. Army’s Annual Meeting & Exposition, scheduled for October 10 to 12, 2022, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. The following is a list of General Dynamics Land Systems products and solutions that will be displayed at the event.

StrykerX: Supporting the Army’s climate and electrification strategies, the StrykerX technology demonstrator brings to the Stryker family of vehicles capabilities such as silent movement, silent watch, exportable electric power and reduced fuel consumption via a hybrid diesel-electric power pack. StrykerX features a side-by-side crew compartment and more space for the infantry squad. Soldiers inside StrykerX are protected by an integrated Active Protection System and advanced electronic architecture with cyber defense. StrykerX’s array of sensors provide its occupants 360-degree situational awareness and see-through armor capability.

Stryker Leonidas: This technology demonstrator adds counter-electronics capabilities to the Stryker family of vehicles via Epirus’ Leonidas high-power microwave array. Stryker Leonidas’ unlimited magazine depth for counter-electronics missions – counter-UAS among them – adds a key level to layered, mobile short-range air defense (M-SHORAD) for armed forces. Stryker Leonidas features on-board and networked target acquisition and the mobility to accompany all maneuver formations. The system successfully defeated individual targets and swarms of drones during a recent field demonstration.

TRX Breacher: The Tracked Robot 10-ton (TRX) technology demonstrator supports Army objectives for a Robotic Combat Vehicle, executing dull, dirty and dangerous missions so Soldiers don’t have to. TRX’s Breacher payload is designed to perform dangerous obstacle-reduction tasks and is the result of a partnership with Pearson Engineering. TRX’s flatbed design integrates any payload with a class-leading payload-to-chassis ratio of 1:1. TRX is able to maneuver at speed with all formations and is transportable on CH-47 and C-130 aircraft. TRX also generates exportable power to support mission command operations and is hybrid-electric in support of the Army’s climate and electrification strategy.

Mobile Protected Firepower (MPF): GD Land Systems won the Army’s MPF competition in 2022 and has been awarded an initial low-rate-initial-production contract. The MPF vehicle has commonality with the Abrams SEPv3 turret systems and has larger-caliber main gun growth capability to provide firepower to Infantry Brigade Combat Teams (IBCTs). The MPF features add-on armor panels and under-vehicle IED protection, plus proven ammunition compartmentation for crew safety. Its high power-to-weight ratio and hydro-pneumatic suspension provide outstanding speed and cross-country maneuverability. MPF meets all transport mode specifications and is recoverable with organic IBCT assets.
