DRS Technologies Launches New Line of Radiometric Camera Cores

DRS Technologies Inc. debuted its new Tamarisk Precision Series line of radiometric camera cores at the 2015 SPIE Photonics West exhibition. Designed for applications that require both accurate temperature measurement and superior image quality, Tamarisk Precision Series is equipped with DRS's patented infrared sensor technology, expert calibration and new developer tools for greater flexibility, customization and integration for original equipment manufacturers. The Tamarisk 320 Precision Series, with its 17-micron pitch, proprietary infrared sensor architecture and 320x240 resolution, offers a means to remotely locate and identify key temperature variances in a given scene. The product includes new features for user-defined color parameters and a real-time temperature readout for swift and accurate decisions.

DRS Technologies, Inc. to Upgrade Navy Electronic Warfare E/A-18 Mission for U.S. and Australia with New Joint Tactical Terminal-Receiver System

DRS Technologies Inc. announced that it has been awarded access to an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for the production and delivery of up to 180 Joint Tactical Terminal-Receivers (JTT-R) for U.S. Navy and Australian EA-18G aircraft. The contract is valued up to $12 million and will include JTT-R production engineering, test set racks, fixtures and tooling. The JTT-R is an ultra-high-frequency receiver that provides near real-time, over the horizon threat data for situational awareness and assessment, threat avoidance, targeting, mission planning and communications. The contract combines purchases for the U.S. Navy and the government of Australia, under the Foreign Military Sales program. The Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division, in Indiana is the contracting agency. DRS has been developing the JTT-R system since 2009 for the Navy's E/A-18G "Growler" as a replacement to the legacy Multi-mission Advanced Tactical Terminal, which is nearing its end-of-life with the impending transition to the common interactive broadcast waveform. The U.S. Navy's EA-18G "Growler" is a variant of the combat-proven F/A-18F Super Hornet Block II that conducts Airborne Electronic Attack (AEA) missions.
