ITT Exelis to highlight defense and aerospace technologies at 2012 AUSA Meeting and Exposition

MCLEAN, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ITT Exelis (NYS: XLS) will display a wide variety of its industry-leading aerospace and defense products and services at the 2012 Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Annual Meeting and Exposition in Washington, D.C., Oct. 22-24, 2012.

Some highlighted technologies from the Exelis exhibit at this year's AUSA Conference will include:

In addition to exhibiting a wide range of business solutions, Exelis will also highlight its new community volunteer program, Exelis Action Corps at the event. In partnership with Points of Light, Exelis is engaging its employees and residents of the communities in which Exelis operates in meaningful volunteer projects that serve and support returning military service members, veterans and their families.

"As a company that manufactures technologies that protect our military service members abroad, and one that has a global workforce comprised of approximately 10 percent military veterans, it was only natural that ITT Exelis decided to invest in and deploy its own employees to support the men and women who so bravely serve, and have served, our nation," said Exelis CEO and President David Melcher.
