L-3 Communications has announced that the US Army's Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation has awarded L-3 MPRI a sole-source, follow-on contract for its Laser Marksmanship Training System (LMTS). This ID/IQ contract has an estimated value of $48.7 million over the initial base year and four option years. L-3 has received the program's first delivery order, valued at $15.5 million.
