General Dynamics Opens Cyber Intelligence Center in Annapolis

General Dynamics inaugurated a Cyber and Intelligence Solutions Center in Annapolis Junction, Maryland. The 28,000 square foot facility is built to serve the U.S. Department of Defense and the intelligence community. The National Security Agency and U.S. Cyber Command are located nearby in Ft. Meade, Maryland. Approximately 100 cyber security experts will staff the new facility. This is in addition to the 8,000 General Dynamics workers already employed in Maryland and the national capital region.

"Defending the nation's networks requires new levels of close collaboration between government network operators and industry to deliver advanced, integrated cyber-defense solutions," said Bill Ross, vice president of Federal Systems and Cyber Solutions for General Dynamics C4 Systems.
