L-3 Awarded Contract for Unmanned Systems

With the economy still stumbling along for most companies, L-3 Communications is taking advantage of the growing demand for unmanned military systems, winning a contract to supply the U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) expeditionary unmanned systems technology.


SOCOM awarded L-3's Geneva Aerospace division a contract with a potential value of $250 million over five years.
