L-3 Communications Wins 2 Navy Contracts for $24 Million

L-3 Communications landed a pair of Department of Defense contracts worth a combined $24 million in an end-of-week DoD contract announcement Friday. Specifically, the contracts awarded include:

  • A $13.4 million firm-fixed-price modification to a previously awarded contract for the production of 16 universal modular masts, or UMMs. The UMM is a non-hull-penetrating mast carried by Virginia-class nuclear fast-attack submarines. It serves as a lifting mechanism for five different sensors, including the Photonics Mast Program, high data-rate mast, multi-functional mast, multi-functional modular mast, and integrated electronic support measures mast. Each sensor is mounted on a UMM. L-3's work on this contract should be completed by December 2015. 
  • a $10.6 million firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery requirements contract awarded to L-3's Vertex Aerospace LLC subsidiary for the provision of maintenance and logistics services on T-39N and T-39G aircraft. Both twin-jet aircraft are used by the Navy and Marine Corps for pilot training, with the T-39N Sabreliner used for radar navigation training, and the T-39G variant used for non-radar training. This contract runs through September 2014.
