Finmeccanica won a new order by the U. S. Army

Finmeccanica, through its company DRS Technologies, has been awarded a contract valued at up to USD 514 million by the U.S. Army to supply the Small Tactical Optical Rifle Mounted Micro-Laser Range Finder (STORM-mLRF). The five-year indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract calls for qualification and manufacturing of a minimum delivery of 150 and a maximum of 32,000 micro-laser range finders. DRS’ STORM sight combines a laser range finder with a digital compass and a processor that computes and displays targeting data, an infrared aiming laser, a visible pointer and illuminator, and the Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System (MILES) to simulate tactical engagement in training exercises.
