FAIRFAX, Va., Jan. 31 (UPI) -- General Dynamics Information Technology has received a $27.3 million contract to upgrade airport security systems in Los Angeles.

The contract was issued by the City of Los Angeles, Los Angeles World Airports and covers the closed-circuit television and video management and storage system at the Los Angeles International Airport.
