Turnersville, N.J. - CDM Electronics, a premier authorized distributor of electronic connectors and cables, today announced it received the Soldier's Network Defender of the Year Award for 2015 from defense contractor General Dynamics Mission Systems, which connects soldiers and protects their communications and information across land, sea, air, space and cyber domains. CDM is one of only eight suppliers given the distinction at the Soldier's Network Defender of the Year Award Presentation on April 15, in Washington, DC. Over 500 suppliers, from 44 states, were eligible for the honor.
CDM received the award due to their outstanding on-time delivery and superior performance when supplying interconnect solutions to support General Dynamics Mission Systems' WIN-T (Warfighter Information Network-Tactical) network and Manpack radio. The WIN-T network enables secure voice and data communications and superior situational awareness, while the handheld Manpack radio provides mobile voice and data networks to soldiers on the ground and in vehicles. Notably, the Manpack allows soldiers to talk, text message, use apps and send pictures without cellular infrastructure.
"The entire CDM team is honored to be recognized by General Dynamics Mission Systems' Soldier's Network Defender of the Year Award for 2015," stated CDM Account Manager, Brooke Candee, upon accepting the award. "Achieving this recognition is testament to CDM's commitment to excellence and the on-time delivery of interconnect solutions to General Dynamics. We are very proud to help the defense industry protect the lives of the men and women who serve in the U.S. Armed Forces," she added.
