L-3 unit in potential $500 million U.S. satcom deal
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A unit of L-3 Communications Holdings Inc (LLL.N) has won a U.S. Special Operations Command deal for portable satellite-communications gear with a potential value of up to $500 million over five years, the Defense Department said Wednesday.
The guaranteed contract minimum is $7.6 million, the department said in its daily contract digest.
L-3 Global Communications Solutions, the same unit, was awarded in 2010 a potential $170 million contract over five years for so-called very small aperture terminal satellite communications systems and related equipment.
Such systems are designed to integrate data, broadband internet, telephony, multimedia, audio, video and computer networking - all in a rucksack-sized package.
