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.
