L-3 Wins $245M For TSA Imaging Systems

L-3 Communications (NYSE: LLL) has won a potential $245 million contract to provide the Transportation Security Administration new imaging systems at airports, according to a Sept. 17 contracting notice.

TSA wants the Advanced Imaging Technology-2 systems to provide transportation security officers with threat detection capabilities, including locating potential threats concealed from view on a passenger.

The AIT-2 systems detect weapons, improvised explosive components, plastic threats and other metallic and non-metallic anomalies.

TSA ordered reduced-sized systems, hoping they provide an alternative to full-size systems and reduce the machines’ overall footprint for smaller checkpoint configurations.

BAE Systems and NCR Government Systems helped the agency test a new boarding pass and passenger identification system in the spring with the goal of detecting fraudulent documents.
