DRS Technologies, Parsippany, N.J., said it received a $7.1 million contract from the U.S. Air Force to provide depot radar repair services. The contract, which is with the Warner Robins Air Logistics Center at Robins Air Force Base in Georgia, calls for DRS to provide repair services for the receiver/transmitters and antenna subsystems in APQ-170 TF/TA radar systems. The AN/APQ-170 is a multimode, redundant, dual-band and forward-looking radar that integrates terrain following and terrain-avoidance features, as well as ground-mapping, weather detection and avoidance, and beacon interrogation modes of operation. It was specifically developed for the Air Force's MC-130H Combat Talon II airplane. The work for this one-year award will begin immediately and be performed by the company's DRS Sustainment Systems business unit in St. Louis, Mo.
