L-3 Awarded UK Joint Remote Viewing Terminal Supply Contract; Michael Strianese Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting event

L-3 CommL-3 Communications has received a potential $23.2 million contract from the U.K. ministry of defense to provide a joint common remote viewing terminal for a new British military communications program.

UK MOD will adopt the remote viewing terminal to consolidate its intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance platforms with strike capabilities and maritime platforms, L-3 said Monday.

The terminal uses L-3's tactical network ROVER handheld transceivers and ROVER 6i transceivers to transmit full-motion video and other types of information across the battlespace via a wideband Internet Protocol network.

Michael Strianese, L-3's chairman and CEO, said the company's interoperable communications technology will be a key component of the British land forces and Royal Navy's future communications programs.

The L-3 JCRVT platform is based on the ROVER product family and designed to operate with current U.K., U.S. and NATO ISTAR platforms as well as the U.K. AH-64 Apache E Block and P-8 aircraft.

L-3 Communications' Systems-West business, part of the broadband communications sector within L-3's Communication Systems business segment, will perform the work for four years, with a potential three-year extension if all options are exercised.

Ultra Electronics will perform repair through an in-country support facility.
