“This follow-on award is another indication of the long-standing, positive relationship between the U.S. Navy and DRS ICAS,” said Hans DeViso, DRS ICAS vice president of communications. “We are committed to providing high-quality products and services to the Navy.”

Named AN/USQ-82(V), GEDMS is a mission-critical, ship-wide data transfer network that is a key enabler for the DDG modernization program. The network transfers inputs/outputs for the machinery control system, damage control system, steering control system, AEGIS Combat System, navigation displays, and interior communication alarms and indications. This work will be performed at the company’s Buffalo, New York, location.

DRS ICAS addresses industry opportunities to better service its customers by providing capabilities in areas such as communications, tactical terminal radios, avionics, EW threat systems, intelligence and mission systems.
