December 09, 2019
LONDONDERRY, N.H. L3 Technologies won a $37.5 million contract to deliver precision aiming lasers for the U.S. Navy. The laser combines a range finder with a ballistics and environmental sensor to prepare the operator for increased likelihood of a first-round hit, according to a Pentagon announcement.
This program supports U.S. Special Operations Command's visual augmentation systems weapons accessories program, which provides "mixed reality" headsets that allow conventional and special operations forces to run through controlled scenarios.
The Navy has obligated $900,000 to L3 at the time of award. The deal carries a five-year ordering period, with work expected to be completed by November 2024.
