L-3 Communications is awarded $12 million modification contract for Mk 20 electro-optical sensor systems, radar cross-section kits, engineering support services, and depot spares for both the US Navy and Coast Guard.  

The Mk 20 electro-optical sensor system is a major component of the Mk 34 gun weapon systems employed by the DDG 51-class destroyer, CG 47-class cruiser and Coast Guard offshore patrol cutters as well as ship classes of various allied nations, US department of defense said in a statement Tuesday.

The spares procured are required to support the gun weapon systems by performing safety check-sighting, look-point-shoot, range, identification of counter-battery targets and identification of short-range surface targets in support of anti-surface warfare.  

Work is expected to be completed by November 2019.
