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.

General Dynamics Canada is part of General Dynamics C4 Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD). See www.gdcanada.com for more information about the capabilities offered through General Dynamics Canada.
