DRS gets $339 million Joint Effects Targeting System contract
Washington (UPI) Sep 23, 2016 - DRS Network and Imaging Systems has been awarded a $339 million firm-fixed-price contract for the U.S. Army's Joint Effects Targeting System.

Work locations and funding will be determined with each order.

The estimated completion date is September 2021.

Army Contracting Command is the contracting activity.

The Joint Effects Targeting System is an Army-led, joint-interest program with the Air Force and Marine Corps to develop and field a one-man-portable, handheld capability to rapidly acquire, precisely locate and engage targets with precision-guided munitions while improving the effectiveness of engagement with unguided munitions.

The system allows small units supported by Army forward observers and joint tactical area communications systems to have access to precision targeting in all operational environments.

BAE Systems Hagglunds is to provide systems integration, upgrades and support services for the Danish army's fleet of 44 CV90 infantry fighting vehicles.

The contract with Denmark's Defense Acquisition and Logistics Organization also includes prototyping, government-furnished equipment integration, systems safety, maintenance, repairs, and overhaul.

The Danish Army's BV206 all-terrain vehicles will also be covered by the agreement.

"This is a strategically important contract that further underpins good relations with the Danish customer," said Peter Nygren, director of business development at BAE Systems Hägglunds. "We recognize the importance of this contract to our Danish customer and we are looking forward to meeting our commitments."

The company said the contract includes comprehensive industrial cooperation between BAE Systems and industrial partners in Denmark.

The monetary value of the agreement was not disclosed.

"This agreement with BAE Systems Hägglunds is a very important milestone for DALO and the Danish Army," said Col. Anders Maerkedahl Pedersen, head of Land Division at DALO. "With this partnership, we will sustain and develop these highly advanced platforms during the many years to come."
