L-3 receives UK MoD contract

26th October 2016 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The UK Ministry of Defence’s (MoD’s) Joint Common Remote Viewing Terminal (JCRVT) will use products from L-3’s Rover family under a $23.2 million contract announced on 24 October. 

L-3 will supply Tactical Network Rover handheld transceivers and Rover 6i transceivers that will integrate key UK ISTAR platforms with strike capabilities and maritime platforms. This capability will enable the exchange of ISR information, including full-motion video, across the battlespace via a wideband IP network.

The L-3 JCRVT solution is designed to be interoperable with current UK, US and NATO ISTAR platforms and the UK AH-64 Apache E Block upgrade and P-8 maritime patrol aircraft. 

The initial contract duration is four years followed by two three-year options.

L-3 is partnering with Ultra Electronics, which is responsible for repair through an in-country support facility. 

Michael T Strianese, L-3’s chairman and chief executive officer, said: ‘We have broad expertise in this interoperable, advanced communications technology, which will be a key component of the British land forces and Royal Navy’s future communications programmes.

‘The UK has always been a significant international market for L-3, and we look forward to expanding our partnerships and our footprint with new programme positions like JCRVT.’
