COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- March 26, 2013

The U.S. Navy Facilities Engineering Command for Europe, Africa and Southwest
Asia, based in Naples, Italy, has awarded ITT Exelis (NYSE: XLS) a contract
worth $5.7 million for base operations support services at Deveselu Air Base
near Caracal, Romania.

This is a combination firm-fixed-price with indefinite-delivery,
indefinite-quantity contract. It includes the base year plus two options that
run through December 2015. The services include base operations and
administration, fire and emergency services, supply services, housing and
environmental operations.

“We are very pleased to be selected as the base operations provider for the
Navy’s Deveselu location,” said Ken Hunzeker, president of the Mission Systems
division of Exelis. “We look forward to providing support to this critical
foothold and to the Navy’s operations in central Europe and elsewhere.”

This was a new procurement and did not replace an existing contract. Exelis is
a global leader in base operations, logistics and facility services at other
U.S. government locations in the U.S. and overseas.
