NEW YORK CITY, 27 March 2006. L-3 Communications has announced its acquisition of two companies that will expand its military and homeland security product portfolio: CyTerra Corporation and SafeView Inc.
"These two companies are leaders in threat detection technology and are highly synergistic with our existing Security and Detection Systems (S&DS) business," says said Frank C. Lanza, chairman and chief executive officer of L-3 Communications.
S&DS supplies solutions for aviation, rail, and cargo screening, port and border inspection, and facility and infrastructure security.

"We anticipate increased federal funding to supply products for border security, aviation checkpoints, maritime, cargo, port and mass transportation security, and hazardous material storage."
