DRS to Restructure, Relocate Corporate Functions; William Lynn Comments

DRS Technologies announced it is restructuring into three operations groups and will enter a proxy agreement with the Defense Security Service.

DRS, a Finmeccanica subsidiary, said the agreement will allow DRS and its subsidiaries to compete for classified contracts and access classified information as a unified entity.

DRS will also consolidate its corporate functions from Parsippany, N.J. and Rockville, Md. to its Arlington, Va. headquarters.

CEO and former Defense Deputy Secretary William Lynn said the moves are meant to make the company more competitive as it becomes leaner.

  • Group President Terry Murphy will lead the network and imaging systems group, which includes the electro-optical and integrated sensor systems business lines.

The group also develops networks that integrate those sensors into a tactical command, control, communications and computers environment.

  • Richard Danforth will serve as president of the integrated defense systems and services group, which includes intelligence gathering, training systems and telecommunications services.

That group will also include the legacy businesses of DRS Defense Solutions and DRS C3 & Aviation Group.

  • Roger Sexauer will serve as president of the power, environmental and sustainment systems group.

As of April 1, ATK (NYSE: ATK) consolidated its operations into three business groups, a move first announced by CEO Mark DeYoung announced in February.

That company now operates missile products, aerospace systems and sporting groups.
