L3 Technologies Received an EOTech Optics Contract from USSOCOM
NEW YORK, the USA (BulgarianMilitary.com) – L3 Technologies announced on 16th January 2019 that the company received a $26.3 million EOTech Optics contract from the U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), learned BulgarianMilitary.com
Under the newly received five-year indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract (with five option-years) contract L3 Technologies will provide clip-on magnifiers and close-quarters sights from its EOTech brand for the Miniature Aiming System-Day Optics suite. This contract is a continuation of a 17-year relationship between EOTech and USSOCOM. Special Operations Forces has been receiving rugged and advanced holographic weapon sights from EOTech since 2001.
Under the new agreement EOTech will supply an upgraded variant of its holographic weapon sight and the G33 clip-on magnifier, which is shorter and lighter than the previous models. The agreed works will be executed in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the USA at EOTech’s headquarters.
Jeff Miller, Corporate Senior Vice President and President of the ISR Systems business segment, which includes EOTech, commented, “We are extremely proud to continue to provide America’s tip-of-the-spear warriors with the most advanced holographic sights in the world. It’s a testament to L3’s commitment to quality that USSOCOM has once again competitively selected EOTech as their choice for battle optics.”
