L-3 Awarded Contract for 2nd-Gen Passenger Screening Systems
L-3 Communications (NYSE: LLL) announced today that its Security and Detection Systems division has received an award from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to supply the second generation of Advanced Imaging Technology (AIT) systems. The indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (ID/IQ) contract has a ceiling value of $245 million.
Under this contract, L-3 will supply its new Provision® 2 system to TSA. Provision 2 is a reduced-size personnel screening system that provides the same image-free threat detection capabilities and safe millimeter wave technology as the widely deployed ProVision® ATD system. The ProVision 2 detects metallic and non-metallic objects, such as weapons, explosives and other targets. Reduced-sized systems provide an alternative to full-size systems, helping to reduce the overall footprint for smaller checkpoint configurations.
