DRS Technologies, Inc., a Finmeccanica Company, announced today that a $38.7 million Cdn. competitive contract has been awarded to DRS Technologies Canada Ltd. (DRS Canada) in support of the Canadian Land Command Support System Life Extension Project.

Under this contract, DRS Canada will manufacture and deliver 13,624 Communication Selector Boxes and 4,937 Power Distribution Units – Small Form Factor along with spare components, with two one-year options for the manufacture of additional units.

“We are extremely proud to be selected by Canada to produce and deliver the Communications Selector Boxes and Power Distribution Units for the Canadian Army”, says Steve Zuber, vice president and general manager, DRS Technologies Canada Ltd. “These Line Replaceable Units further enhance the networking and communications capability for Canadian soldiers and vehicle crews in the mobile land warfare environment.”

Production deliveries will take place over a three year period, beginning in Spring 2013.DRS Canada is partnered with Varitron Technologies Inc. (VTI) of St Hubert, Quebec, for the provision of high-volume manufacturing services.
