General Dynamics UK Closes Scout Reconnaissance Variant Review; Kevin Connell Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting event

General Dynamics EbizGeneral Dynamics UK has completed the critical design review for the Scout reconnaissance variant that is intended to help the British Army perform intelligence, surveillance and target acquisition missions.

The company performed the review on the variant's platform hull design, the Lockheed Martin UK-built turret, electronic architecture, onboard software solutions, subsystems and variant-specific products, General Dynamics said Thursday.

Kevin Connell, vice president of General Dynamics UK's land systems business, said the CDR's completion paves the way for the delivery of a family of Scout specialist vehicle platforms to the British Army.

The system, part of the Scout SV program, is designed to help soldiers collect commander information within a network-enabled digital platform.

The single review for the Scout SV system's platforms will follow the Scout reconnaissance variant's CDR and preproduction of the first Scout reconnaissance prototype is scheduled in late 2015.

General Dynamics designed the Scout SV to operate in combined-arms and multinational situations.
