DRS Consolidated Controls, Inc. (DRS CCI) provides products and services for both the commercial nuclear market and the Navy nuclear market. For the commercial nuclear industry, DRS CCI designs, manufactures, qualifies, and tests instrument and control systems for commercial nuclear power plants. Our systems have proven track records of performance, reliability, and quality and range from analog control systems, to discreet logic systems, and to micro-processor based systems. DRS CCI has a long standing tradition of supporting our legacy installations as long as feasibly possible. We do not terminate support on our legacy products. As a result, we have extensive experience in performing module redesigns for our customers to solve obsolescence issues.

DRS CCI has been providing the U.S. Nuclear Navy with highly engineered electronic designs for instrumentation and control processes since our first installation on the USS Nautilus (SSN-571), the Navy’s first nuclear-power submarine commissioned in 1954. We work with our naval customers from requirements definition through deployment and sustainment to deliver the best solutions. DRS CCI is a business unit of DRS Technologies, a leading supplier of integrated products, services and support to military forces, intelligence agencies and prime contractors worldwide.

The company is a wholly owned subsidiary of Finmeccanica S.p.A. (FNC.MI) which employs approximately 70,000 people worldwide.
