Category: Defence Industry

DRS Technologies, Inc. announced today that it has received a $52 million contract to provide rugged Applique Computer Systems and peripheral equipment for the U.S. Army's Force XXI Battle Command, Brigade and Below (FBCB2) program.

The order was received by DRS from the U.S. Army's Communications-Electronics Life Cycle Management Command (CELCMC) at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey.

The company's DRS Tactical Systems unit in Melbourne, Florida will produce the FBCB2 computer systems, including more than 5,700 processors, 5,800 display units, 5,300 keyboards, 6,700 hard disk drives and 1,400 rugged, solid-state hard disk drives.

DRS's Applique Computer Systems are installed on more than 40 U.S. Army and Marine Corps wheeled and tracked vehicles, at tactical operations centers and at other command post platforms. The computer systems support the Army's Blue Force Tracking requirements, which include beyond line-of-sight reporting and tracking, and vertical and horizontal information integration that is incorporated into the military's overall battlefield visualization efforts.

This additional order reflects DRS's strong track record for providing America's military with the most innovative and reliable products of the highest quality. Applique computer systems have been successfully fielded for FBCB2, and this contract ensures they will continue to serve as crucial assets for the Army's network-centric communications infrastructure.
