NEW YORK, Oct. 26 (UPI) -- L-3 Communications has been contracted by the U.S. Navy for additional VideoScout systems, which provide interoperable video exploitation and intelligence.

The system captures, processes and exploits video and telemetry from a variety of manned and unmanned aircraft, vehicles, ships and network-based video streams, allowing users to create derivative video files and images from across the battlespace.

The annotated and geo-reference material allows frontline tacticians and intelligence analysts to turn vast amounts of video data into concise, easily shared video intelligence, the company said.

"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, president of the L-3 Electronic Systems Group. "We are honored to continue to provide new systems, service, training and capability enhancements in support of mission-critical operations."

The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity Navy contract, given on behalf of the Marine Corp Systems Command, is for four years and has a potential value of $85 million.
