L-3 Wins Contract to Provide Communications for International Space Station for $24M
L-3 Communications (NYSE: LLL) announced today that it has been awarded a $24 million contract to deliver communications units for NASA's Common Communications for Visiting Vehicles (C2V2) program.
The C2V2 program provides standardized communications between the International Space Station (ISS) and docking vehicles by using a standard data link for exchanging audio, video and telemetry data at varying data rates and communications ranges. This will consolidate communications functions on the station, save weight and space, and simplify logistics for coordinating the docking of visiting vehicles.
