Power Distribution and Switchgear Equipment for US Navy's Stealthiest Submarine Program

L-3 Communications (NYSE:LLL) announced today that it has been awarded a contract to deliver switchgear equipment in support of the power distribution and protection system for the U.S. Navy’s newest submarine, which will replace the existing Ohio-class platform. This competitively awarded contract includes the detail design and qualification of the switchgear, along with the delivery of select units to the first submarine. Follow-on deliveries will extend to 2035 if the U.S. Navy builds all boats in the current plan of record.

“This is an important contract for L-3 because it demonstrates our ability to meet evolving naval requirements with optimal reliability and performance,” said Michael T. Strianese, L-3’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
