L-3 Inks MCS Deal for Fast Combat Support Ships

L-3 Communications (NYSE: LLL) has won a contract to replace the Machinery Control System (MCS) on Military Sealift Command’s (MSC) T-AOE Fast Combat Support Ships.

The contract is valued at $40 million and includes design, manufacturing and testing of the new equipment for one ship, with options for the remaining ships of the class. Additionally, the contract designates L-3 as the turn-key provider for the design, build, test, integration, installation, commissioning, and spares for the ship’s new machinery and cargo control system.

“This is an exciting win for L-3 as it exemplifies the broad capability of the Marine & Power Systems Group to provide low-risk, complete solutions for our customers,” said Steve Kantor, president of the Marine & Power Systems Group. “We are extremely pleased to be selected and are committed to providing MSC with a modern, open architecture, state-of-the-art control system solution that allows optimal manning, efficiency, safety, and is supportable for the life of the ship.”
