General Dynamics - AS9100 Certification


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623

: 08 May, 2007  (New Product)
General Dynamics Robotic Systems has achieved the SAE Aerospace AS9100 Quality Management System certification.
Certification helps ensure that General Dynamics Robotic Systems will continue to provide the highest-quality, best-value products to its Aerospace industry customers. Most major aerospace companies require the coveted AS9100 certification to ensure product quality. The certification was a requirement as a prime contractor on U.S. Army's Future Combat Systems' (FCS) Autonomous Navigation Systems (ANS) program.

The two-year process required upgrading existing policies, procedures and forms to meet AS9100 standards. General Dynamics Robotic Systems used Intertek Testing Services as its certification registrar. The AS9100 incorporates aspects of ISO 9001:2000 with unique elements focused on Aerospace industry needs and requirements. General Dynamics Robotic Systems has been ISO 9001 certified since 1995.

'The AS9100 certification will enhance our already existing quality system and provide our aerospace customers with the quality and processes they expect,' said Scott Myers, president of General Dynamics Robotic Systems. 'This certification also underscores our dedication to quality as the lead system integrator on the FCS ANS program.'

General Dynamics Robotic Systems develops and produces autonomous unmanned ground vehicles and water vessels for Department of Defense and security applications. The company also operates one of the largest machine shops in the mid-Atlantic region, working with virtually all metals and plastics, including aluminum alloys, kovar, Inconel(R), titanium and exotic materials.
