Pentagon Contract Announcement
(Source: U.S. Department of Defense; issued June 02, 2014)
L-3 Communications, Platform Integration Division, Waco, Texas, has been awarded a not-to-exceed $41,500,000 undefinitized contract action for the procurement and modification of four Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance aircraft, training and spares in support of the counterterrorism efforts in Yemen.

Work will be performed at Waco, and is expected to be completed by Sept. 30, 2015. This award is the result of a sole-source acquisition, and is 100 percent foreign military sales for Yemen.

The 645 AESG/WIJK, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, is the contracting activity (FA8620-14-C-3020).

(EDITOR’S NOTE: While this is not confirmed, the aircraft involved are probably L-3’s SPYDR, a heavily-modified Beech King Air 350 fitted with a wide range of ISR sensors.)
