DRS ANNOUNCES “POWERED BY DRS TECHNOLOGIES” ACCREDITATION AND REFERRAL STRATEGY

ARLINGTON, VA, February 2, 2015 -- DRS Technologies, Inc., a Finmeccanica Company, has announced plans for its new “Powered by DRS Technologies” product accreditation program. The intent of the program is to highlight the integrated solutions of original equipment manufacturers’ (OEMs) that employ DRS’s premier Tamarisk® thermal imaging camera modules, infrared detectors and thermal systems technology. 

DRS Technologies, Inc., a Finmeccanica Company, has announced plans for its new “Powered by DRS Technologies” product accreditation program. The intent of the program is to highlight the integrated solutions of original equipment manufacturers’ (OEMs) that employ DRS’s premier Tamarisk® thermal imaging camera modules, infrared detectors and thermal systems technology.

As a leader in the development and manufacture of advanced electro-optical infrared sensors and systems, DRS has been providing state-of-the-art infrared imaging components for OEMs and military prime contractors for over half a century. DRS has launched its “Powered by DRS Technologies” Product Accreditation program to highlight products that successfully integrate DRS thermal imaging technologies and provide end users with feature-rich capabilities and competitively positioned, market-ready solutions.

The “Powered by DRS Technologies” accreditation will be available to OEMs that successfully collaborate with DRS to include infrared camera modules and detectors into their superior product offerings. The program facilitates the cross promotion of DRS customers’ brands, products and capabilities while also referring business opportunities that match these offerings.

 “When an end-user sees a product with a “Powered by DRS Technologies” accreditation, they should be instantly assured that the OEM has selected infrared imaging components that have the distinct advantages of DRS’ unmatched thermal image quality,” said Todd Brown, Senior Director, Worldwide Sales and Marketing for DRS Commercial Infrared Systems.

 DRS’s accreditation program signals a strategic marketing shift. The Commercial Infrared Systems division of DRS has elected to discontinue direct sales and marketing of its WatchMaster® branded thermal security camera systems and will refer security systems business to accredited OEM products instead. DRS remains dedicated to high-quality standards and honors all existing, fielded WatchMaster thermal camera systems with a full two-year warranty and technical support.

 The first set of OEM products receiving Powered by DRS Technologies accreditations will be DVTEL’s ioimage® Thermal camera line and Ganz® Security’s Ganz Thermal Series. The ioimage Thermal and Ganz Thermal product lines are well positioned to address the growing requirements for analog and IP networked thermal security solutions. Through successful adaptation of DRS thermal imaging technology and value-added auxiliary services and support, both companies uniquely build on the proprietary benefits of DRS’ uncooled thermal imaging configurations with established distribution channels, breadth of product portfolio, proven industry knowledge-base and brand equity in the security and surveillance market.

DRS and its select OEM customers will maintain a strategic focus by aggressively pursuing innovative solutions and providing end-users with intelligent systems and competitive pricing. This strategic focus will fuel continued growth and product development in markets spanning the security and surveillance industry, unmanned systems, medical imaging, fire detection and other emerging infrared applications.
