Leonardo DRS has secured a potential five-year, $462.2M contract from the U.S. Navy to produce console, display and peripheral equipment for the branch’s future surface ship combat systems.

The company will support the CDP technology insertion 16, modification 1 program covering common, thin client and multimission displays designed to facilitate human machine interface between sailors and combat technologies on a vessel, the Department of Defense said Thursday.

Ninety percent of contract purchases are for the Navy, 6 percent for Australia and the remaining 1 percent for Spain.

The base performance period is valued at $62.5M and runs through August 2021. Work could extend until April 2025 if all options are exercised.

Naval Sea Systems Command is the contracting activity and received one offer for the firm-fixed-price, cost-plus-fixed-fee, and cost-only contract.
