DRS Mast Mounted Sight Program Wins Aviation Week Award

DRS Technologies’ reconnaissance, surveillance and target acquisition group has won a Program Excellence award from Aviation Week magazine for its Mast Mounted Sight sustainment program, mounted on the OH-58D Kiowa Warrior helicopter. DRS was the only winner in the sub-system sustainment area.

“The RSTA team is most appreciative of the program excellence recognition we have received from Aviation Week,” said the team’s president Terry Murphy. “We are proud of our innovations in thermal imaging devices and are pleased to share our best practices and lessons learned with the industry.

“Although it was originally designed more than 30 years ago, the Mast Mounted Sight is more effective than ever with updated electronics, detection technology and other components from DRS Technologies,” Murphy said.
