DRS Technologies w-borderA DRS Technologies business unit will design and develop energy storage models to supply power for the U.S. Navy‘s DDG 51-class destroyers under a potential $88 million contract awarded by Naval Sea Systems Command.

The company said Monday that DRS Power and Control Technologies will manufacture a storage system that intends to help a ship’s electric plant use only one gas turbine generator.

Roger Sexauer, president of DRS’ maritime and combat support systems group, said the Navy intends to reduce fuel usage by surface combatants with the technology.

The ESMs will be installed on flights I and II of the Arleigh Burke-class fleet.
