L3 Technologies has entered into an agreement with United Launch Alliance (ULA) to become the exclusive provider of avionics and related services for its new Vulcan Centaur rocket system, delivering an estimated $1 billion-plus in mission-critical systems and services, over a 10-year period.

Under the agreement, ULA and L3 will integrate the companies’ design and manufacturing processes to provide ULA with low-cost, custom solutions, enhancing ULA’s launch services. L3’s Space and Sensors sector will perform work on this project, which is part of the company’s Sensor Systems business segment.

Vulcan Centaur is ULA’s next-generation rocket system. It provides the capability to handle the missions ULA’s Atlas and Delta rockets perform today at a significantly reduced price, the company stated.
