DRS Laurel Technologies is being awarded a $90 million modification contract for the development, integration, and production of technology insertion hardware (TIH).

TIH is the latest generation of display, processor, and network requirements for combat control and sonar systems for naval submarines. Equipment to be obtained under the contract is used in mission-critical/essential systems on board submarines. Components consist of commercial, off-the-shelf equipment that is uniquely configured for the particular platform and system to satisfy workstation, processor, file server or other network requirements, the US department of Defense said in a statement Thursday.

This modification brings the cumulative value of the contract to an estimated $474 million.  The contract combines purchases for the Navy and the governments of Australia and the United Kingdom under the Foreign Military Sales program.  Work is expected to be completed by September 2021.
