L3 to Supply New F/A-18, EA-18G Aircrew Training Systems Under $218M Navy IDIQ

L3 Technologies (NYSE: LLL) has secured a potential five-year, $218.1 million contract to provide new aircrew training systems for the U.S. Navy‘s F/A-18C/D/E/F and EA-18G fleets.

The company will also update hardware and software and perform modifications on current training equipment for both aircraft platforms under the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, the Defense Department said Friday.

DoD added that L3 will help the service branch modernize software configuration sets, develop engineering change proposals, implement Naval Aviation Simulation Master Plan upgrades and supply spare parts for hardware deliverables.

The service branch will obligate $1.5 million at the time of award from its fiscal 2016 aircraft procurement and fiscal 2018 operation and maintenance funds.

Contract work will take place in Arlington, Texas, through April 2023.

The Naval Air Warfare Center’s training systems division awarded the contract through a non-competitive procurement process.
