ARLINGTON, VA, July 11, 2019 -- Leonardo DRS, Inc. announced today that it has received a contract to deliver vehicle installation kits (I-Kits) for the next-generation Mounted Family of Computer Systems II (MFoCS II). The indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract from the U.S Army Project Manager Mission Command, is worth up to $28.3 million.
This is the second contract award for I-Kits. As the Army’s fielding of MFoCS units across operational units continues, the need for additional installation kits is growing. The MFoCS II Mission Command hardware will support the continued fielding and upgrades of the Army’s Joint Battle Command – Platform which features critical system capability upgrades, cybersecurity improvements, and multi-touch displays. In addition, there are significant performance enhancements of the platform computing server as the Army continues to improve the Joint Battle Command – Platform systems used for tactical situational awareness and global “Blue Force Tracking” and In-Transit Visibility logistics tracking.
“We are proud to use the capacity of our Manufacturing Center of Excellence to produce these vehicle installation kits and improve overall throughput for the Army,” said Bill Guyan, vice president and general manager of the Leonardo DRS Land Electronics business. “Ultimately we want to ensure the Army can continue to deliver Mission Command capabilities to soldiers as fast as possible,” he said.
