L-3 Communications Corp. will furnish advanced technologies and other support services to the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic under a contract potentially worth $87.4 million.
Under the contract, L-3 Services will assist in the development of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems; unmanned aerial vehicle systems; and intelligence operations, the Defense Department said Jan. 26.
The L-3 unit also will provide a variety of key support services for these and other activities, such as software development, remote sensing and imagery analysis. Other services to be provided are information assurance, network security, emergency preparedness planning, technology validation and mission training.
L-3 Services will perform the work in Washington, D.C., and Charleston, S.C. If all options are exercised, the company will continue working on the project until 2014.
L-3 Communications, of New York, ranks No. 8 on Washington Technology’s 2008 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
