WASHINGTON, 21 March 2010.Power electronics researchers at DRS C3 Systems Inc. in Stevensville, Md., will develop an advanced design and simulation tools for integrated power system (IPS) development under terms of a $7.9 million contract announced Friday.

DRS experts will develop an advanced hydrodynamics simulation tool, as well as related ship simulation and design tools for capability-based ship design that includes IPS technology.

This effort supports the research and development of alternative technologies for advanced power systems and developing ship design tools for IPS ship concepts.

DRS experts will do the work in Stevensville, Md., and should be finished by March 2015. Awarding the contract were officials of the Naval Sea Systems Command in Washington.
