L-3’s equipment will support medium-altitude covert intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions carried out by GA-ASI’s Predator XP remotely piloted aircraft system. Deliveries to GA-ASI in California began earlier this year, the company said, and once fielded, the systems will be maintained by one of L-3 Wescam’s 14 service centers.
