DRS integrating command system into Thai armored vehicles

ARLINGTON, Va., Dec. 2 (UPI) -- DRS' mission command capabilities are being integrated into First Win armored tactical vehicles by Thailand's Chaiseri Metal & Rubber Co Ltd.

The system to be delivered is C4InSight, a modular, scalable and open architecture communications system with the ability to interface and control a wide range of HF and VHF radios, satellites and other line-of-sight and below line-of-sight communications systems.

Central to it is DRS's Network and Imaging Systems group's data distribution unit, which enables centralized communication between the C4ISR -- command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance -- platform and weapon sub-systems.

"This new partnership is an exciting venture for DRS, providing us with the opportunity to establish a relationship with a world-class defense manufacturer like Chaiseri," said Mike Sarrica, president of DRS's Network and Imaging Systems group. "We are excited to team with a company that values the full spectrum of unique capabilities and experience that DRS has to offer in this field on a superior vehicle like the First Win multi-role armored vehicle."

DRS said Chaiseri will be responsible for in-country installation and on-going support and maintenance of the mission system products and systems and that DRS will provide engineering support from its facilities in the United States and Britain.

No additional details about the teaming agreement were disclosed.
