About Us

In 1916, Kollmorgen, a small optical company in Brooklyn, New York was contracted to design, build and install the first workable periscope aboard the first U.S. submarine. For ninety years, the company has remained devoted to high-accuracy, stabilized, electro-optical systems for defense.

L3 KEO employs a full spectrum of engineering and manufacturing disciplines to design a variety of sensor and weapon systems for submarines, surface ships, combat vehicles, and other defense platforms.
