General Dynamics supplies system design and integration services to ensure a precise fit to the requirements of each specific user platform. The AMC is a set of digital computer hardware and software that performs general purpose, I/O, video, voice, and graphics processing.

The AMC open system architecture is based on a modular implementation that lets the configuration be tailored to meet user requirements. This building block approach also simplifies technology insertion and product improvement activities by allowing distinct components of the system to change with minimal impact to the rest of the system.
