“Our two companies have worked together on EW technology programs for special-mission aircraft since the 1990s,” said Mitch Friedman, vice president and general manager of the Exelis integrated electronic warfare systems business. “Our experience and shared history in this field will produce a system more than capable of addressing customer needs and enabling mission success in a changing EW environment.”
“Our team offers cutting-edge technology, maturity and experience,” said Michael Wright, president of L-3 Platform Integration. “The combination of L-3’s C-130 domain knowledge and the latest Exelis EW technology will deliver mission-enabling capabilities quickly and with low risk.”
Work on the pursuit will be performed at the Exelis facility in Clifton and at L-3 Platform Integration in Waco, Texas. Exelis provides advanced, integrated EW solutions to protect and enable domestic and international customers to perform their critical missions. L-3 Platform Integration has decades of C-130 systems integration experience that includes a variety of special-mission C-130 variants.
