$55 Million in Contracts to Manufacture Tactical Quiet Generators for US Army

DRS Technologies
: 17 May, 2008  (Company News)
DRS Technologies, Inc. has received three contract awards worth approximately $55 million from the U.S. Army's Communications-Electronics Command (CECOM) at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey to manufacture more than 2,300 Tactical Quiet Generators (TQG).
The first delivery order is worth $37 million, the second delivery award is worth more than $10 million, and the third delivery order is valued at approximately $8 million. The orders include 5-, 10- and 15-kilowatt TQGs, which will be manufactured and delivered between April 2008 and April 2009.

The delivery orders are part of a $369 million Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract with CECOM, placed immediately prior to the initial delivery award.

CECOM placed the order on behalf of various Army, Navy and Air Force units through the Army's Program Executive Office for Command, Control and Communications Tactical, and its subordinate office of Project Manager for Mobile Electric Power at Fort Belvoir, Virginia.

The awards continue a long-term production program for the Army, which initially began as a development program in 1997. After the company's success in producing such a dependable and useful power source as the TQG, the program moved into full production phase. Since then, DRS has been the premier provider of these generators for the military.

To date, DRS has manufactured more than 10,000 10-kilowatt TQGs for the military, and by the end of the year, will have produced more than 21,000 3-kilowatt units, as well.

Work on these contracts will be accomplished by the company's DRS Fermont unit in Bridgeport, Connecticut. DRS Fermont has been a leading designer and manufacturer of rugged, reliable military generators since World War II, and is the largest supplier of generators to the U.S. military.

DRS manufactures the TQG in 3-, 5-, 10-, 15-, 100- and 200-kilowatt versions. Whether for training missions or real-world peacekeeping and combat operations, the company's suite of TQGs is engineered and manufactured to meet the stringent U.S. military requirements for an efficient, rugged and portable source of electrical power. DRS' TQGs provide military forces with a reliable power source that is lightweight, quiet and can be used in remote field locations wherever electrical power is needed. DRS' next-generation 100- and 200-kilowatt TQGs feature an advanced electronic diagnostics and prognostics package, and a state-of-the-art digital control panel.
