The U.S. Navy’s Marine Corps Systems command has signed an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (ID/IQ) contract with New York City-based L-3 Communications for its VideoScout family of systems.
The contract provides for the purchase of new equipment, modifications of existing equipment and the development of new system enhancements, and if all the options are exercised, the four-year contract’s value could reach $85 million, L-3 says.
“With more than 1,000 systems in use worldwide, VideoScout provides a unique situational awareness capability for U.S. Marines and Navy personnel around the world,” said Steve Kantor, L-3 electronic systems group’s president.
The VideoScout is described by the company as “a family of interoperable video exploitation, intelligence and management systems designed to capture, process and exploit video and telemetry from a wide variety of manned and unmanned airborne platforms, vehicles, ships and network-based video streams.”
The system allows users to create both derivative video files and still images, as well as annotate, geo-reference, store and share the resulting intelligent video. VideoScout helps tacticians and analysts quickly turn video data into usable intelligence with the aim of improving mission planning, execution and post-mission analysis.
