L-3 to Provide Army Fuzes

L-3 Communications has won a $34,179,840 Army contract modification to provide the branch with fuzes, the Defense Department announced Monday.

The company will produce the M7341 and M783 fuzes in Cincinnati and the Pentagon expects that work to finish by Aug. 31, 2014.

The Army Contracting Command’s office in Picatinny, N.J. is the contracting activity for the firm-fixed-price contract.

The Navy recently awarded the company’s Unidyne division $58 million to support a Navy service life extension program for four air-cushion vehicles.

The division will upgrade buoyancy boxes, replace gas turbine engines, repair corrosion and install equipment for command, control, communications, computers and navigation.
