General Dynamics Canada has received an order to supply more than 1,000 Smart Display Units (SDU) for installation in U.S. Army Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles.

This order represents the first use of General Dynamics’ technology in a MRAP platform. General Dynamics will “provide the SD7310, its latest generation smart display designed specifically for on-the-move operation in armoured fighting and tactical vehicles.” The SD7310 has a 10.4″ ruggedized computer and touch-screen display in one device.

“The migration to next generation smart displays on combat vehicles provides warfighters with increased operational capability and improves their ability to communicate on the battlefield,” said David Ibbetson, general manager of General Dynamics Canada. “Establishing this footprint on MRAP is strategically important to General Dynamics Canada and the future of our vehicle electronics business.”

The current order will have 500 of the over 16,000 MRAP vehicles upgraded and equipped with two SD7310 displays.
