General Dynamics Land Systems Tallahassee Operations EngineeringGeneral Dynamics, SINCGARS, and the U.S.Army — A Partnership for SuccessA commitment to quality, service, and the United States Army has earned General Dynamics a record unrivaled performance in the Single Channel Ground & Airborne Radio System (SINCGARS) program.General Dynamics joined the SINCGARS team in 1988, embracing an ambitious challenge: to produce a product not simply meeting — but greatly exceeding — the U.S. Army’s requirements.We’ve done just that. Today, General Dynamics is proud to deliver SINCGARS radios that provide greater performance and are more reliable, maintainable, and affordable than ever before. Superior cosite performance Superior power management Greater than 7,000 hours MTBF Superior BIT function Superior maintainability designPerformance — Setting the StandardsGeneral Dynamics has set a new standard of excellence for the SINCGARS program. Our superior achievement in the areas of power consumption and cosite performance prompted the Army to tighten its specifications. General Dynamics remains the industry leader.Reliability — Better than EverGeneral Dynamics’ SINCGARS Receiver Transmitter (RT) delivers exceptional reliability — greater than 7,000 hours Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) — more than 6 times the Army’s requirements. MTBF success is the result of three key factors:* Producible design* Stringent component definition* State of the art automated manufacturingMaintainability — Back In the Field QuickerHere again, General Dynamics exceeds the Army’s requirements. Our enhanced Built In Test (BIT) function pinpoints the cause of failure not only to the individual board, but to the affected circuit on specific boards. And it’s done without external test equipment.This level 2 BIT function is so reliable that we incorporated it into our maintenance support program. This means the radio returns to the field quicker — back to the soldier where it belongs.Affordability — Without CompromiseGeneral Dynamics has incorporated Best Commercial Practices (BCP) components into its SINCGARS program. BCP translates into savings — without compromise — for the Army. Exhaustive testing has allowed us to insert only those components which guarantee there is no sacrifice to performance, maintainability, or reliability.
