"Sidewinder missiles provide the warfighter a critical contribution to the counter-air mission," said Stefan Eckert, president of DRM GmbH. "DRM is proud to contribute to Sidewinder missile capability and to provide follow-on support."
DRM GmbH is a joint venture founded by Diehl and Raytheon in 2004. The company's primary objective is the modernization and marketing of AIM-9L/M Sidewinder missiles, but also provides worldwide logistics and life-cycle support for the AIM-9/M Sidewinder.
