L-3 Communications wins $9.3M contract to support airborne warning system

 L-3 Communications has won a $9.3 million sole source contract to support the Air Force’s E-3 Airborne Warning and Control System.

The system is an airborne radar picket system designed to detect aircraft, ships and vehicles at long ranges and perform command and control of the battlespace in an air engagement.

Under the contract, L-3 will provide program management support, commercial training simulation services for contractor-furnished aircrew training devices, and contractor logistics support for government-owned part task trainers, the Defense Department said in a release.

Work will be performed in Oklahoma City, Okla., and is expected to be completed in December 2015.
