Business Wire

NEW YORK -- November 06, 2012

L-3 Communications (NYSE: LLL) announced today that its Security and Detection
Systems division has received an award from the Transportation Security
Administration (TSA) to supply the second generation of Advanced Imaging
Technology (AIT) systems. The indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (ID/IQ)
contract has a ceiling value of $245 million.

Under this contract, L-3 will supply its new Provision^® 2 system to TSA.
Provision ^ 2 is a reduced-size personnel screening system that provides the
same image-free threat detection capabilities and safe millimeter wave
technology as the widely deployed ProVision^® ATD system. The ProVision 2
detects metallic and non-metallic objects, such as weapons, explosives and
other targets. Reduced-sized systems provide an alternative to full-size
systems, helping to reduce the overall footprint for smaller checkpoint
configurations.

Headquartered in New York City, L-3 employs approximately 51,000 people
worldwide and is a prime contractor in C^3ISR (Command, Control,
Communications, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) systems,
aircraft modernization and maintenance, and national security solutions. L-3
is also a leading provider of a broad range of electronic systems used on
military and commercial platforms.
