General Dynamics Mission Systems–Canada (GDMSC) and CDW Canada are to provide the Net C2 ISAC solution to the Canadian DND.
News Release, Ottawa, 22 August 2022: Together with CDW Canada, General Dynamics Mission Systems–Canada announced today that it has been awarded a multi-year contract to provide the Network Command and Control Integrated Situational Awareness Capability (Net C2 ISAC) to the Department of National Defence (DND).
The Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) relies on effective command and control for operations. As a result, General Dynamics and CDW will provide an integrated situational awareness capability to monitor IT services which are critical to operational effectiveness.
“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 defence 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 fulfil CAF’s mandates knowing they will be supported in real-time through full access to their IT services.”
The Net C2 ISAC programme supports further advancement in Canadian strategic defence capability in Cyber Resilience and Artificial Intelligence through economic development investments by General Dynamics.
