DRS Technologies and Chaiseri Metal & Rubber Co Ltd. Enter into an Exclusive Teaming Agreement
Dec 2 13
DRS Technologies announced that its Chaiseri Metal & Rubber Co Ltd. have entered into an exclusive teaming agreement to integrate DRS's C4InSight(TM) mission command capabilities into the new Chaiseri First Win multi-role armored 4x4 tactical vehicle. The partnership enables the Chaiseri/DRS team to deliver a combination of innovative Thai engineering with DRS's ground vehicle mission systems integration to customers in Thailand and Southeast Asia. Central to this initiative is the integration of DRS's Data Distribution Unit (DDU) into the Chaiseri vehicles. The DDU enables centralized communication between the C4ISR platform and weapon subsystems and provides a wide range of services including tactical router, voice cross-banding and call management, tactical server, network video distribution, cellular communications, GPS distribution, vehicle power management, peripheral control and vehicle health management. All of these systems are accessible from a connected common tactical workstation via a configurable interface. Third-party applications such as battle management systems can be hosted on a virtual machine and run concurrently with multiple VM services. C4InSight(TM) system is a modular, scalable and open architecture communications system with the ability to interface and control a wide range of HF and VHF radios, SATCOM and other line of sight and below line of sight communications mediums. The DDU also provides embedded Wi-Fi for inter-vehicle and intra-vehicle communications.
U.S. Army to Test DRS Technologies' On-Board Vehicle Power System for Consistent Equipment Power on the Battlefield
Nov 21 13
DRS Technologies, Inc. announced that its On-Board Vehicle Power system, a high-powered DRS/Allison Transmission Integral Generator installed on combat vehicles, will be included in the U.S. Army's critical field testing for network technology. The On-Board Vehicle Power (OBVP) system generates power to operate a host of command, control, communications, computers and other sensors on battlefield vehicles by transforming the vehicle's powertrain into an electrical power plant and reducing the reliance on heavy generators to power numerous electrical systems. The field testing at the Army's Network Integration Evaluation is designed to keep pace with rapid advances in communications technologies and deliver proven and integrated network capabilities to soldiers. In addition to the usual network and communication systems that are typically put to the test in this bi-annual assessment, DRS's OBVP system will be employed and evaluated on two separate, DRS-sponsored concept vehicles, the Mobile Integrated Command Post (MICP) vehicle and the Mission Command On The Move (MCOTM) vehicle -- both repurposed Navistar MaxxPro Mine Resistant Ambush Proof (MRAP) vehicles. The OBVP system, manufactured by DRS's Network and Imaging Systems group, reduces the logistical footprint, increases battlefield mobility and enhances expeditionary mission capability for deployment. The technology works with combat vehicle platforms such as Stryker, MRAP, and the family of medium tactical vehicles that use the Allison 3000 series transmission. The technology does not alter the vehicle's drive line and reduces the logistical burden that is typically associated with generator systems. Moreover, the OBVP system operation does not require a new military operational specialty; it is simply operated by the vehicle driver. The MICP and MCOTM vehicle modernization concepts directly address multiple operational gaps facing today's Army. These concepts deliver persistent battlefield power while reducing their respective prime mover requirements while simultaneously increasing battlefield mobility.
DRS Technologies, Inc. Announces Completion in Live Fire Tests of Active Protection System
Oct 21 13
DRS Technologies, Inc. announced that in cooperation with General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS), it has completed a ten-month combat vehicle integration and live fire testing program featuring Active Protection technology. As part of its strategic initiative to demonstrate next generation anti-armor survivability technologies for its combat vehicle fleets, and following an international tender process, GDLS chose the combat-proven Trophy Active Protection System for its full-scale integration and testing program on a General Dynamics LAV III armored vehicle. DRS and Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, partners on the Trophy system, worked in close cooperation with GDLS to perform the detailed mechanical, electrical, and electronic systems design integration and installation of the Trophy system on the LAV III without degrading the original performance level of the vehicle. Following a series of mobility trials to stress the Active Protection integration on the vehicle, the system underwent a comprehensive, 3-month live fire test regimen at a Canadian test range against multiple rocket-propelled grenade variants, recoilless rifle, and anti-tank guided missiles. These tests were performed in various challenging engagement scenarios including short range, moving vehicle, multiple threats, and high clutter environments. Besides performance testing to validate the system functionality, additional test data included arena sampling for collateral effects, residual penetration, vehicle/crew safety, and electronic safe/arm performance.
