General Dynamics

General Dynamics

General Dynamics Corporation (NYSE: GD) is a United States aerospace and defense company formed by mergers and divestitures. As of 2011, it is the fourth largest defense contractor in the world. It is headquartered in West Falls Church, Fairfax County, Virginia.

The company has changed markedly in the post-Cold War era of defense consolidation. It has four main business segments: Marine Systems; Combat Systems; Information Systems and Technology; and Aerospace. Until 1993, when production was sold to Lockheed, General Dynamics' former Fort Worth Division manufactured the Western world's most-produced jet fighter, the F-16 Fighting Falcon. In 1999, the company re-entered the airframe business with their purchase of Gulfstream Aerospace.

Famous quotes containing the words dynamics and/or general:

    Anytime we react to behavior in our children that we dislike in ourselves, we need to proceed with extreme caution. The dynamics of everyday family life also have a way of repeating themselves.
    Cathy Rindner Tempelsman (20th century)

    The general feeling was, and for a long time remained, that one had several children in order to keep just a few. As late as the seventeenth century . . . people could not allow themselves to become too attached to something that was regarded as a probable loss. This is the reason for certain remarks which shock our present-day sensibility, such as Montaigne’s observation, “I have lost two or three children in their infancy, not without regret, but without great sorrow.”
    Philippe Ariés (20th century)
