L-3 Awarded $20 Million Contract For The Design And Development Of The Next-Generation Transmission For The U.S. Army’s Existing And Future Ground Combat Vehicles

L-3 Communications (NYSE:LLL) announced today that its Combat Propulsion Systems (L-3 CPS) division was awarded a $20 million contract by the U.S. Army to design and develop a next-generation transmission system for ground combat vehicles.

The Gemini Transmission program will modernize and sustain existing and future fleets of the Army’s ground combat vehicles. L-3’s new transmission technology will be used as a drop-in replacement for existing transmission systems, enhancing the Army’s ability to achieve power, mobility and life-cycle support requirements for its Armored Brigade Combat Team.

“Winning the Gemini Transmission design and development program reflects our customer’s continued confidence in L-3 to advance transmission technology and effectively transition new designs to production, which would ultimately deliver improved performance, reliability and life-cycle costs to our customer,” said Steve Kantor, president of L-3’s Electronic Systems Group. “By leveraging our expertise in transmission design and production and through strategic partnerships, L-3 CPS is now under contract with the customer to mature all four of the next-generation transmissions for the Armored Brigade Combat Team’s family of heavy vehicles, including the HMPT 800 series of transmissions.”

Work will take place at L-3’s Muskegon, Mich. facility, as well as at partner locations, and is expected to continue through 2017.

L-3 Combat Propulsion Systems (L-3 CPS) is located in Muskegon, Mich., and is part of the Space and Propulsion Systems Sector, which operates under the Electronic Systems Group. L-3 CPS provides engineering design, engineering support and production for combat engines and transmissions, as well as life-cycle product support for domestic and international customers.
