L-3 Communications
: 01 September, 2010  (Application Story)
Nova Engineering to supply the US Marines with image capture and telemetry systems as part of the Marines’ TRSS program
L-3 Communications’ Nova Engineering subsidiary has been awarded a $52.8 million follow-on contract by the Department of Defence (DoD) to support the United States Marine Corps’ Tactical Remote Sensor Systems (TRSS) program. Under this five-year award, Nova will provide equipment, upgrades and repairs, and program management services in support of the TRSS initiative.

“We are very pleased to be selected by the US Marine Corps to continue the TRSS program. With thousands of units and components already deployed, our field-proven system captures, processes and transmits imagery that significantly improves situational awareness on the battlefield,” said Mark Fischer, president of L-3 Nova Engineering. “This important award demonstrates the close partnerships we build with our customers, and our commitment to continually update and develop innovative products to meet the needs of an ever-changing market.”

L-3’s TRSS system provides the capability for all-weather remote monitoring of activity within and near a given objective area. The system is unique in providing autonomous and continuous unattended sensor surveillance of multiple distant areas, and can detect the presence of movement and classify the target, identifying it as personnel or wheeled or tracked vehicles, while also determining the direction of movement. This capability allows troops to know what type of activity is occurring in an area of interest and respond accordingly, in real time.

L-3 Nova Engineering, based in Cincinnati, Ohio, designs, develops and produces digital and real-time embedded software and hardware for communications and telemetry applications, including flight and ground engagement simulation, imaging target detection and fusion-enabled sensor technology. The company is part of the L-3 Communication Systems Group.
