NEW YORK. Officials at L3 Technologies received multiple contracts to develop Free Space Optics (FSO) capabilities for U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and space customers.

FSO technology enables high-bandwidth communication while protecting signal integrity in a highly contested spectrum environment and is a next-generation solution for high-capacity, over-the-air communications.

Work on these contracts will be done by L3 Communication Systems-West (L3 CS-West), which is part of the company’s Communication Systems business segment.
