L-3 Communications’ (NYSE:LLL) Communication Systems-East division has received a $52 million contract modification for the U.S. military’s secure global communications system via the advanced extremely high frequency communications security (COMSEC) and transmission security (TRANSEC) system, known as ACTS.
