DRS Wins $339M Army Contract to Build Handheld Joint Targeting System


DRS logoDRS Technologies has won a potential five-year, $339.3 million contract from the U.S. Army to support the military service’s Joint Effects Targeting System initiative.

The Army Contracting Command received two offers for the firm-fixed-price contract and will determine performance location with each order, the Defense Department said Thursday.

DRS is scheduled to complete work by Sept. 21, 2021.

DRS and BAE Systems were selected as contractors under the engineering and manufacturing development phase of the JETS program and competed for the production contract through a restricted competition.
