L-3 Wins South Korea Laser Targeting Tech Order; Steve Kantor Comments

L3 logoAn L-3 Communications (NYSE: LLL) business unit has won a $30 million contract to provide laser designator systems to South Korea.

The contract with South Korea’s Defense Acquisition Program Administration covers Scarab Ground Laser Target Designators, spares, maintenance work and training services, L-3 said Wednesday.

Steve Kantor, president of L-3’s electronic systems group, said the company created a new business area with this win as L-3 aims to grow the international market footprint of its imaging product line.

Scarab systems contain rangefinding and infrared thermal imager tools that work to help warfighters identify targets during the day or at night.

The system is also built as a tripod-mounted, single man-portable system and is designed to run on a battery for more than an hour.

L-3 is scheduled to start delivering the designators to South Korea in mid-2014.
