L-3 Communications has been awarded a contract for the assessment phase of project Listener for the UK’s Ministry of Defence.
Project Listener integrates sensor products in order to provide actionable intelligence against selected targets and to achieve interoperability between UK Istar assets and US and coalition systems and networks. Listener leverages the experience of L-3’s network centric collaborative targeting program, which networks command and control and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance assets to dramatically improve target location accuracy, timeliness and combat identification for the war fighter.
Bob Drewes, president of L-3’s integrated systems group, said: Project Listener is blazing the trail for UK network-enabled capability. It takes advantage of our success in fielding the network centric collaborative targeting capability, modified for UK collection, processing, dissemination, and security context.
