London, United Kingdom - General Dynamics will demonstrate the strength of its capabilities at this year's DSEi 2011 at the ExCeL Centre in Docklands, London. Nine General Dynamics companies, including General Dynamics UK, will demonstrate the breadth of capability that General Dynamics provides to its customers around the world.
The General Dynamics companies present at DSEi 2011 will be: General Dynamics UK; General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems; General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products; General Dynamics C4 Systems; General Dynamics Canada; General Dynamics Electric Boat; General Dynamics European Land Systems; General Dynamics ITRONIX; and General Dynamics Land Systems.
General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems (Stand S9-105)
Axsys Technologies, a division of General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems, will be demonstrating its perimeter surveillance and force protection systems at DSEi 2011 including a live display of the Axsys EOSS 250TC Long-Range Thermal Imager (LRTI) system, a static display of the Axsys EOSS 1000 and a model of the Axsys V9 Multi-Sensor.
The EOSS 250TC system offers narrow-to-wide field-of-view options, enabling missions from wide-area perimeter surveillance to long-range threat identification. Capable of resolving man-sized targets at over 20km, the EOSS 1000 is ideal for target acquisition in ground-based missions requiring maximum detection distance. The Axsys V9 Multi-Sensor features a large format infrared sensor, two high-definition cameras and 4-axis gyro-stabilisation to capture distant target signatures and preserve image clarity.
