DRS Subsidiary awarded $1.2 million contract for Navy tactical display consoles.
The versatile Tactical Display Console was specifically designed to interface with a remotely located enclosure containing the electronics for processing, graphics, networking and other components requiring special cooling and noise containment. As a result of this configuration and the unique architecture of the TDC, the ship's small combat information center, where the TDC will be located, will be quieter, less crowded and will not require extensive environmental modifications.
Mark S. Newman, chairman, president and chief executive officer of DRS, commented, "Our ability to capture the Tactical Display Console contract award underscores our strong leadership position in Commercial Off-The-Shelf or "COTS" system design, integration and production. The flexibility of this open-systems design approach, which DRS incorporates in all of our display workstation product lines, provides a common capability for the display needs of different military platforms. The unique configuration of these display consoles is ideally suited to a COTS design approach, resulting in a substantial cost savings for the Navy."
The COTS-based design of DRS's tactical display systems product line meets or exceeds critical performance, reliability and long-term support requirements for the company's government customers. DRS's tactical display systems are used in military platforms that span air, sea and land applications.
