L-3 Communications wins $14 million contract for hardware on Boeing Delta rockets

FARNBOROUGH, England, July 19, 2004. L-3 Communications announced today that its Space & Navigation division (L-3 S&N) has been awarded a $14 million contract by the Boeing Company of Huntington Beach, California, for the Delta Avionics program.

Under this contract, which will run through April of 2008, L-3 S&N will assume design responsibility, then produce, qualify, test and deliver a total of 566 units comprising 10 different part types.

The program is a continuation of L-3 S&N's heritage of producing highly reliable products for space launch applications. L-3's hardware for the Delta Avionics program ranges from complex assemblies, providing inertial sensing, power switching and actuator control functions, to simple modules used for transient suppression. The avionics will be used in every stage of the Delta launch vehicle.

"This award, coupled with our Redundant Inertial Flight Control Assembly (RIFCA) program, allows us to be one of the primary suppliers of Delta hardware to Boeing," said Paul Wengen, president of L-3 S&N. "The contract demonstrates our customer's continued confidence in our capabilities and our industry-leading standards, and will ensure we continue to be a key supplier on Boeing's Delta launch vehicles."

L-3 Space & Navigation, located in Budd Lake, N.J., is a world premier provider of inertial instruments and integrated fire control systems to the global marketplace and is a major supplier of high-quality pointing, guidance, control and positioning equipment for satellites, artillery and launch vehicles serving the military, commercial and government markets. The division's products and capabilities include fiber-optic and ring laser gyros, reaction wheel assemblies, position navigation units and fire control and digital battlefield solutions. L-3 Space & Navigation has provided state-of-the-art systems for many critical and strategically important space and national defense programs and is the premier supplier of precision pointing and position location systems for the U.S. Army.
