L-3 Communications has received a $21 million order from the Transportation Security Administration to supply security scanners for TSA’s passenger screening efforts.
The company said Tuesday the order will increase the number of ProVision systems installed at U.S. aviation facilities to nearly 1,000.
The security and detection systems division of the aviation products and security sector within L-3’s electronic systems segment will perform work under the contract.
“We’re pleased that the TSA has chosen L-3’s ProVision 2 as part of its strategy to enhance checkpoint security and the airline passenger experience,” said L-3 CEO and Chairman Michael Strianese.
Strianese added that the company will continue to invest in research-and-development projects in an effort to offer new security technologies.
