“Winning the Gemini Transmission design and development program reflects our customer’s continued confidence in L-3 to advance transmission technology and effectively transition new designs to production, which would ultimately deliver improved performance, reliability and life-cycle costs to our customer,” said Steve Kantor, president of L-3’s Electronic Systems Group. “By leveraging our expertise in transmission design and production and through strategic partnerships, L-3 CPS is now under contract with the customer to mature all four of the next-generation transmissions for the Armored Brigade Combat Team’s family of heavy vehicles, including the HMPT 800 series of transmissions.”
Work will take place at L-3’s Muskegon, Mich. facility, as well as at partner locations, and is expected to continue through 2017.
