L-3 Communications Gets Naval Aircraft Deal

L-3 Communications Corp., Arlington, Texas, is being awarded around $14,1 million modification to a firm-fixed-price delivery order issued previously against Basic Ordering Agreement.


This modification provides for footprint reduction/storage area network to update existing architecture for the F/A-18E/F and EA-18G aircraft.

The update reduces Tactical Operational Flight Trainer (TOFT) host/instructor operator station hardware, centralizes software storage, provides expandable software storage for future TOFT enhancements, allows for multiple software configurations, and updates all analog Mission Management System (MMS) video output to digital supporting future improvements to MMS displays.

Work will be performed in Lemoore, California (20 percent); Miramar, California (20 percent); Whidbey, Washington (15 percent); Oceana, Virginia (15 percent); China Lake, California (10 percent); Arlington, Texas (10 percent); and Atsugi, Japan (10 percent), and is expected to be completed in June 2016.

Fiscal 2014 aircraft procurement (Navy) contract funds in the amount of $14,089,284 will be obligated at time of award, none of which will expire at the end of the current fiscal year.

The Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division, Orlando, Florida, is the contracting activity.
