DRS Technologies wins CDS contract
DRS Technologies has announced that its business unit, DRS Laurel Technologies, has been awarded a contract to provide the US Navy with the Variant A Common Display Systems (CDS). The CDS will be used on surface ships, submarines and aircraft carriers to enhance situational awareness for personnel.
The CDS is an advanced workstation that provides operators simultaneous access to multiple shipboard applications, bringing the battlespace picture together, enhancing situational awareness and shortening decision making cycles.
The contract, with a potential value of $23.4 million, is an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract with a completion date of May 2013. An initial order has been received by DRS and teammate Lockheed Martin for production and qualification of three CDS consoles, configuration options and spares.
