  • 20-Jan-2009 02:02 EST
DRS Technologies Inc. received a $531 million indefinite-delivery-indefinite-quantity contract ceiling extension to its current JV-5 production contract to provide JV-5 ultra-rugged vehicle computing and display systems for the U.S. Army’s Force XXI Battle Command, Brigade and Below program and Blue Force Tracking (BFT) and the U.S. Marine Corps situational awareness requirements. This contract provides for an indefinite quantity of JV-5 vehicle computing and display systems over the next five years, allowing the Army to place delivery orders against this contract for individual requirements. The company’s DRS Tactical Systems unit in Melbourne, FL, will manufacture the systems and is scheduled to continue delivering them through 2012. The company’s vehicle computer systems are being installed on more than 40 types of Army and Marine Corps wheeled and tracked vehicles, at tactical operations centers and other command post platforms.
