General Dynamics Mission Systems is excited to introduce FirstRunner, a new Compact Rapid Deployable (CRDTM) 4G LTE communications system for the customer owned and maintained (COAM) market that is easily deployable by a single person. FirstRunner is rapidly deployable across the full spectrum of public safety agencies and incidents. Easily transportable on any standard vehicle trailer hitch, the system features a 15-minute setup time, lower cost of ownership as compared to larger, less mobile solutions and is designed to easily accept upgrades as technology continues to evolve. The FirstRunner solution is anticipated to enter testing with AT&T later this year for compatibility with FirstNet – the nationwide public safety LTE communications platform dedicated to America’s first responders.

General Dynamics will also feature displays dedicated to its SHIELD Ecosystem, which provides integrated, mission critical communication systems for public safety and security.
