GD to Develop Integrated Computer-Network Defence System for Canadian DND

  • Technology demonstration program seeks to enhance security of Department of National Defence networks, minimizing the risk to operations brought through cyber attacks

General Dynamics Canada has been awarded a contract to develop and demonstrate an automated computer-network defence capability to enhance the security of the Canadian Department of National Defence's (DND) networks. The ARMOUR project, conceptualized by Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC), will develop and integrate advanced scientific and technological solutions to the increasingly challenging and complex problem of defending DND networks, protecting their mission-critical information.

"Cyber security is a growing concern for the governments and militaries of today," says David Ibbetson, vice president, General Dynamics C4 Systems – International. "Drawing on our experience developing secure defence networks for customers around the world, General Dynamics Canada will demonstrate a solution for protecting DND's networks, helping to safeguard mission-critical information."


ARMOUR will integrate leading-edge network cyber assessment tools to proactively deal with cyber vulnerabilities and mitigate attacks in real time, as well as automatically generate optimized courses of action for potential future threats.  Demonstrations will be used to validate the functionality of the resulting system.
