“L-3 Communications Holdings Inc. … announced that its Security and Detection Systems division has been awarded an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity or ID/IQ contract by the Transportation Security Administration or TSA to supply medium-speed explosives detection systems. The five-year acquisition program has a revenue potential of $549.6 million for L-3.” [Emphasis added, by crackey. Just in case that fortune stolen from our pockets didn’t reach out and grab you.]
