Leonardo DRS has received a contract from the US Navy to produce and deliver advanced consoles and display systems.

The $62m contract, with a ceiling value of $462m, will support the navy’s future surface ship combat system.

Under the terms of the contract, the Leonardo DRS Naval Electronics business unit will be responsible for the delivery of a suite of Common Display System (CDS) consoles, a set of open-architecture watch station display consoles comprising water-cooled and air-cooled variants.

They serve as the next-generation of hardware infrastructure and represent the latest technology available on the market.

The company will also provide thin client displays, multi-mission displays, and support equipment for the navy.

The common display hardware provides the interface between the sailor and the combat systems of the ship.

Leonardo DRS Naval Electronics business senior vice-president and general manager Tracy Howard said: “Building these advanced systems gives US Navy sailors the latest in combat networking hardware and provides mission-critical fleet modernisation and readiness requirements today and into the future.

“We are proud to be a trusted partner with the navy and this contract builds on our long relationship supplying reliable products, from computing hardware infrastructure for combat systems to tactical networks and common shipboard processors.”

Work related to the contract will be carried out at the Naval Electronics facility located in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, US.

In February this year, Leonardo delivered two King Air 350 extended-range (ER) multi-mission, twin-engine turboprop aircraft with pre-installed surveillance sensors and mission system. The company served as the prime contractor and systems integrator for the project.
