Acquisition program has $550M revenue potential for L-3.

Defense contractor L-3 Communications has nabbed an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to supply explosives detection technology to the Transportation Security Administration.

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.
