L-3 to install undersea warfare training range for U.S. Navy

NEW YORK, N.Y., 26, Oct. 2012. The U.S. Navy selected the L-3 Communications (NYSE: LLL) MariPro division, a division of L-3 Marine & Power Systems, for a multi-year contract with a potential value of $127 million, if all options are exercised, to install an undersea warfare training range off the coast of Jacksonville, Fla. This contract includes design, manufacturing and installation of a undersea warfare training system that will ultimately span 500 square nautical miles.

The program, which is broken up into two phases, will start with providing the initial infrastructure, including shore facilities and equipment, as well as near-shore cable and seabed sensors to instrument an area of approximately 200 square nautical miles.

The second phase of the program will instrument the remaining 300 square nautical miles. The installed system will provide the U.S. Navy with the technology to maximize training and testing, particularly in shallow water. The system has a 20-year design life.

L-3 MariPro provides concept-through-operations marine systems for military, commercial and academic customers, including fixed and portable maritime training range systems, surveillance systems, marine services, reliable acoustic through-water communications and ocean-observing infrastructure. L-3 MariPro has the majority of the U.S. Navy’s currently operational maritime ranges, with several of them in their third decade of service, at various locations around the world.
