Leonardo DRS Awarded More than $134M Production Order for Family of Weapon Sights

Leonardo DRS, Inc. (NASDAQ: DRS) announced today that it has received an order for continued production of its next-generation thermal weapon sights for the U.S. Army. The recently awarded production order for more than $134 million was made under the Family of Weapon Sights – Individual (FWS-I) IDIQ contract.

Leveraging DRS’ uncooled thermal imaging technology, FWS-I is a stand-alone, clip-on weapon sight that connects wirelessly to helmet-mounted vision systems including the enhanced night vision goggle binoculars (ENVG-B) and the next-gen integrated visual augmentation system (IVAS) and provides rapid target acquisition capabilities to the soldier. It gives users the ability to acquire targets day or night and in smoke or fog, which provides strategic and tactical advantages to the soldier.

“This cutting-edge technology ensures our soldiers will have the most advanced weapon sight systems on the battlefield today. We are proud the U.S. Army recognizes us as a trusted partner to continue to deliver this vital technology,” said Jerry Hathaway, senior vice president and general manager of DRS’s Electro-Optical Infrared Systems business.
