NEW YORK -- August 15, 2013

L-3 Communications (NYSE: LLL) announced today that its MAS division has been
awarded a contract from the Government of Canada to provide complete
in-service support (ISS) services for the country’s fleet of CC-150 aircraft.
The five-year contract, with two five-year option periods, has a total
potential value of $669 million ($683 million Canadian).

The CC-150 Polaris fleet, which is based on the Airbus A310 platform, is used
by Canada’s Department of National Defence (DND) for such high-profile
missions as VIP transportation and strategic air-to-air refueling, as well as
passenger, freight and medical evacuation transportation. As the prime
contractor, L-3 MAS is responsible for overall program management, materiel
management, engineering support, flightline maintenance, heavy maintenance,
and component maintenance, repair and overhaul services.

“We are honored to be selected by the Canadian government to continue
supporting the CC-150 Polaris fleet and its strategically important mission,”
said John McNellis, president of L-3’s Integrated Systems Group. “This award
is very significant to L-3, as we continue to expand our platform and
logistics solutions capabilities internationally. It also provides additional
diversity to our impressive Canadian military ISS business base, which already
includes fighters, trainers and helicopters.”

L-3 MAS has been the incumbent on this program since being awarded the CC-150
Interim ISS contract in June 2012. Under this new contract, L-3 MAS will
conduct work at its facilities in Mirabel, Quebec, and at the customer’s
operating base in Trenton, Ontario.
