A subsidiary of L3 Communications Corp. (NYSE: LLL) won a multimillion-dollar contract on Nov. 28, with a large portion of the work to be done on Florida’s Space Coast.
L3 Interstate Electronics Corp., based in Anaheim, Calif., won a $45.4 million contract from the U.S. Navy for flight test instrumentation engineering services and support. Work will be performed in nine locations around the globe, but mostly in Cape Canaveral and California. The contract has an expected completion date of Aug. 1, 2020.
L3 also is hiring in Orlando, Melbourne and Cape Canaveral, with more than 20 mostly high-wage positions available, including a principal engineer, regional sales manager, enterprise solutions architect, configuration analyst, software developers, software architects and more. Interested candidates can find more information about the jobs on L3’s website.
L3 has scooped up several big contracts this year, such as a $28.3 million smart bomb contract in August.
Military contracts contribute to the local economy in the form of jobs and subcontractor opportunities, and Central Florida is a major player when it comes to defense contracts. The region snags about $4 billion in government contracts each year because the nation’s Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marines simulation operations are based in Central Florida Research Park. That work helps make Orlando the modeling, simulation and training capital of the world, according to the Orlando Economic Partnership.
