Leonardo DRS, Inc. (NASDAQ: DRS) announced today it is introducing the next-generation of power conversion technology in the company’s Pivotal Power Solutions line of products, to ensure available and reliable electrical power for mission-critical systems on U.S. Navy ships.
The new Leonardo DRS 6KVA Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) is the next step in providing conditioned backup power to command, control, and communication systems where a clean, reliable power supply is mission critical.
The system is based on proven fielded technology developed by Leonardo DRS providing dependable backup power in a smaller, lighter package and meets the grueling electrical requirements in MIL-DTL-24765. This new technology also provides more robust power than systems currently in use, as well as competing systems.

“We are proud to continue our legacy of providing the highest-reliability power conversion solutions to support our naval warfighters in the United States, Canada and other allies around the world,” said Cari Ossenfort, senior vice president and general manager of the Leonardo DRS Naval Electronics business unit. “As the only MIL-spec qualified to the Navy’s gold standard for equipment, the new 6kVA AC UPS technology is steeped in our long legacy of providing proven ship-board power conversion systems, providing even stronger performance than our current product line.”
DRS has leveraged more than four decades of experience and focus on power conversion technology for the U.S. Navy. The company has fielded over 30,000 units, including installations on over 250 ships throughout the United States, Canada and other fleets worldwide. That experience has built a line of Pivotal Power Solutions products that deliver the necessary performance and reliability to support mission-critical systems.
This cutting-edge UPS is form, fit, function, and backwards compatible with existing DRS UPS systems with upgraded technology reducing lifecycle and maintenance costs over the competitors’ technology. It is designed for longer battery life and is optimized for use with valve regulated lead acid (VRLA) and lithium (LiFePO4) battery chemistries significantly reducing battery maintenance over the life of the equipment.
Leonardo DRS is a leading provider of next-generation power conversion and propulsion technology for the U.S. Navy, with major systems for next-generation submarines and surface ships. The company’s experience and proven performance with electric conversion systems continues to provide mission critical support for the increased power requirements of current and future naval platforms.
