L-3 Maritime Systems has been awarded a contract from General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems to supply its Seaframe Control System for the next Independence variant Littoral Combat Ship (LCS). The contract is for the first ship and includes options for an additional 14 ships.

L-3 Maritime Systems, a division of L-3 Marine & Power Systems, is a leading supplier of marine systems and electronics, including integrated bridge, navigation, communications, control and sensing systems for the U.S. Navy, the Military Sealift Command, the U.S. Coast Guard and allied navies. L-3 Maritime Systems also produces solutions for naval applications such as automated battery and environmental monitoring systems, alarm and announcing systems, video data distribution systems, computer information systems, integrated communications systems, and integrated platform management systems.
