Army Orders Initial L3Harris Laser Rangefinder Tech Under STORM 2 Contract
STORM 2 L3Harris
The U.S. Army has awarded an initial delivery order to L3Harris Technologies (NYSE: LHX) for rifle-mounted multifunction laser devices intended to support target handoff operations.
L3Harris said Thursday it will produce more than 1,100 updated Small Tactical Optical Rifle-Mounted Micro Laser Rangefinder systems for the military service under a potential $215 million contract announced last year.
The branch originally awarded the seven-year STORM 2 contract to L3 Technologies, which completed its all-stock merger with Harris Corp. in July 2019.
The company updated the system to increase extended-range target visibility when military personnel perform surveillance, field maneuvers and engagement activities.
“Our STORM portfolio has been a staple of the U.S. Army’s laser rangefinding capabilities for more than 15 years and we are proud to continue delivering combat-ready systems that provide a tactical edge for our soldiers,” said Lynn Bollengier, president of L3Harris’ integrated vision solutions business.
