NEW YORK, Aug. 5 (UPI) -- The U.S. Air Force has contracted L-3 Communications to support force protection security requirements at Defense Department sites around the world.

U.S. company L-3 Communications says its Virginia-based Global Security and Engineering Solutions unit was awarded the force protection security deal as a follow-on to a Integrated Base Defense Security Systems contract.

L-3, one of three companies awarded a indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, will provide the Air Force with integrated base defense support services.

"As part of L-3's Services Group, GS&ES is highly regarded by the U.S. Air Force Security Forces and their program office at Hanscom Air Force Base," Jerry Bates, GS&ES president, said in a statement.

"We look forward to continuing the excellent relationship we forged during our work on the preceding Integrated Base Defense Security Systems contract. This follow-on award will continue our vital work protecting forces worldwide."
