Introduction

GEC-Marconi Radar and Defence Systems (GM-RDS) was a management company of Marconi Electronic Systems. The company provided command and control systems for land, sea and air, missiles and missile guidance systems, air surveillance radar for long range air defence, multi-function naval and land radar and simulation and training systems for armed forces around the world. Alongside the ability to design, integrate, train, support and upgrade solutions such as these, the GM-RDS group was also a world class manufacturer. The company employed 4500 people and had a turnover of £678 million.

 

Input from Steve Bousfield

GMRDS was formed as the vehicle for the JV with Alenia Difesa. It originally included the Radar, Command and Control, Simulation, Missiles and 'Secure' (I can't remember its name) Divisions. Its MD was David Fletcher (later replaced by Peter Brown) and its HQ was in Chelmsford. Peter Brown was the incumbent when the JV was formed and Ian King became its first Chief Exec. The Missiles bit subsequently went to MBDA and the 'Secure' bit somewhere else.
