L-3 Selected for Air Force Weapon Systems Support Contract

NEW YORK–(EMWNews)–L-3 Communications (NYSE: LLL) today announced it has been selected as a

prime contractor for a U.S. Air Force weapons systems support contract

with a maximum value of $6.9 billion.

The company was one of 12 prime contractors selected for contracts for

the indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (ID/IQ) program known as

the Future, Flexible Acquisition and Sustainment Tool (F2AST).

L-3 will compete for task orders and delivery orders under the F2AST


L-3 will provide modifications, development, repairs, and limited,

critical or contingency spares for all Air Force-managed weapons

systems. Requirements include Air Force Special Operations Forces (SOF)

weapons systems and may also include Foreign Military Sales (FMS)

platforms and systems.

Winning as a prime contractor for F2AST

demonstrates the cumulative strength of L-3 Integrated Systems to

provide broad domain aerospace engineering expertise, aircraft

modification and logistics support capabilities to our military

customers, said Alison Hartley, senior vice

president of business development for L-3 Integrated Systems.

L-3 Integrated Systems will manage the program through its L-3 TCS

subsidiary in Warner-Robins, Ga., and includes the capabilities of its

major aircraft modification centers in Crestview, Fla., and Waco, Texas.

The contract also gives U.S. Air Force customers access to the full

breadth of L-3s capabilities and critical

subcontractors via F2AST.

L-3s experience

and the high confidence that its Air Force and Special Operations

community customers have in providing quick-reaction, weapons system

support was an important part of the selection process,

said Ed Gloviak, senior vice president of special programs and services

for L-3 Integrated Systems. Fast and

flexible, yet impeccable technical ability is what we deliver.
