L3 receives STORM 2 production contract
L3 Technologies has received a seven-year, $215 million contract from the US Army Contracting Command to provide soldiers with the Small Tactical Optical Rifle-Mounted Micro Laser Rangefinder 2 (STORM 2), the company announced on 28 March.
The STORM 2 rifle-mounted, multifunction laser system provides soldiers with enhanced visibility at extended ranges during field manoeuvres, surveillance and engagement, while remaining undetected during dismounted and vehicle-mounted missions.
Lynn Bollengier, vice president and general manager of L3’s Warrior Mission Solutions business, said: ‘L3 is continuously investing in technologies like STORM 2 that deliver state-of-the-art precision in a variety of conditions to give our soldiers a critical advantage in the field. We are proud to support the Secretary of Defense’s six priorities for the army’s modernisation mission that are transforming our defence strategy.’
