L-3 will supply TSA with eXaminer 3DX and eXaminer 3DX-ES machine systems to screen bags in airports. More than 640 of the systems are deployed by TSA, the company said.

A five-year acquisition initiative at the agency has a revenue potential of $549.6 million for L-3, according to a company release.
