InfrastructureSHIELD


A fully integrated network solution from a trusted security partner to protect critical facilities and streamline operations

InfrastructureSHIELD is built on the General Dynamics Mission Systems-Canada SHIELD Ecosystem architecture as a robust and secure communications network that takes its inputs from different types of security and surveillance sensors and data fuses them together to give a higher level of situational awareness across multiple operations areas.

About InfrastructureSHIELD

As threats grow more complex, finding the right security solution to protect critical infrastructure is essential to public safety.

Physically protecting a vital port, nuclear power plant, or a classified government facility is only part of the requirement; safeguarding the critical operation and preventing a disruption is just as important. As a trusted and experienced security partner, General Dynamics Missions Systems-Canada understands that to secure critical infrastructure effectively involves more than just protecting the site. It also requires a system than can provide greater awareness of potential threats with the ability to not only secure the operation but also improve its efficiency.

In many cases, critical infrastructure operations are hampered by fragmented systems, disjointed communication networks and incompatible sensors and systems. General Dynamics Mission Systems-Canada can overcome these challenges with InfrastructureSHIELD, a fully integrated network solution that gives security operators the awareness and control to protect and optimize their critical operation.
