L3 to Exhibit Multi-Mission Bombardier Q400 and AT-802L Longsword Aircraft at the Farnborough International Airshow

L3 Technologies (NYSE:LLL) announced today that it will feature two
next-generation Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR)
solutions for government and military applications at the upcoming
Farnborough International Airshow.

L3 will exhibit both its new, extended-performance version of
Bombardier’s™ Q400™ aircraft and the AT-802L
Longsword™, an FAA- and military-certified ISR and
light-attack aircraft, at the L3 Aircraft Support Pavilion, with
capability briefings provided throughout the trade days of the airshow
from July 16-20, 2018.

“L3 is an industry leader that delivers advanced, rapidly reconfigurable
ISR solutions for a variety of complex missions, and we’re investing in
more innovative technologies and systems to meet the needs of our
customers,” said Christopher E. Kubasik, L3’s Chairman, Chief Executive
Officer and President. “Our customers need aircraft that can be deployed
quickly. They want quality, and they want the best solutions for their
requirements and their budgets. These two platforms help to accomplish
those goals.”

L3’s Multi-Mission Aircraft (MMA) offers three baseline Q400 aircraft
configurations — Multi-Role, Maritime Patrol and ISR/Special Operations
— that enable nine mission profiles. The ability to adapt the MMA to
meet each user’s distinctive needs sets it apart from other general or
multi-purpose systems. Interchangeable, extended-range fuel tanks with
mission payload and future provisions for fire-retardant delivery
systems enable the platform to be quickly reconfigured for diverse
planned operations or quick response to unexpected situations.

“As the world’s threats evolve, our efforts to respond have evolved as
well,” said Darryl Conley, Vice President of Strategic Capture for L3
Aerospace Systems. “The L3 Q400 MMA is ready for tomorrow’s challenges
and blends the strengths of a modern high-performance turboprop with our
proven record as a systems integrator and payload innovator. This
platform provides a single, reliable, cost-effective means to do the
same work of a mixed fleet of specially equipped aircraft. The L3 MMA is
the perfect solution to replace aging maritime/ISR aircraft fleets and
the increased costs that go along with them.”

The AT-802L Longsword was developed through a collaboration between
aircraft manufacturer Air Tractor and L3 Aerospace Systems. It is based
on the successful AT-802-series of Air Tractor aircraft, among the
world’s largest and most capable aircraft. The AT-802’s renowned
heritage translates to best-in-class payload and endurance, and a global
network of support for the more than 770 AT-802 aircraft delivered by
Air Tractor.

“Longsword is a low-cost aircraft solution that can be configured for
ISR and light-attack missions,” said Jonathan Dalrymple, Vice President
of Business Development for L3 Aerospace Systems. “The platform provides
precision targeting and enduring surveillance capabilities at a fraction
of the sustainment cost of traditional fighter aircraft.”

Headquartered in New York City, L3 Technologies employs approximately
31,000 people worldwide and is a leading provider of a broad range of
communication, electronic and sensor systems used on military, homeland
security and commercial platforms. L3 is also a prime contractor in
aerospace systems, security and detection systems, and pilot training.
