L3 Eyes Undersea Market Expansion Through Adaptive Methods Buy

L3 Technologies (NYSE: LLL) has purchased Centreville, Virginia-based systems engineering firm Adaptive Methods for an undisclosed sum in a move to expand footprint in the undersea market.

L3 said Tuesday it will incorporate Adaptive Methods into its sensor systems business segment to operate as L3 Adaptive Methods.

Christopher Kubasik, L3 president and chief operating officer, said the transaction would provide L3 access to Adaptive Methods’ unmanned undersea vehicle platforms and further support the U.S. Navy’s requirements.

Kubasik, an inductee into Executive Mosaic’s Wash100 for 2017, added the company will integrate Adaptive Methods’ UUV technologies with its Open Water and OceanServer businesses.

Adaptive Methods develops sensor payloads and autonomy platforms for UUVs and provides undersea and anti-submarine warfare platforms, ASW sonar processing systems and displays and tactical buoy technologies to U.S. military clients.
