General Dynamics has opened a new cyber and intelligence solutions facility in Annapolis Junction, Md., near Fort Meade, the company announced Thursday.
The company said it will employ up to 100 workers at the 28,000 square foot facility, where General Dynamics said it will work on “the full breadth” of the company’s cyber portfolio, including mobile device, voice and access management offerings.
General Dynamics will also use the space for technical demonstrations and collaboration with government.
The National Security Agency and U.S. Cyber Command are both headquartered at Fort Meade.
In October 2011, Boeing opened a cybersecurity and research and development center in Annapolis Junction to collaborate with nearby defense and intelligence customers.
“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 business.
