Mission Optimization

Premium performance turret systems

The L3 Sonoma EO business model is built on rapid integration of optimized modules, delivering premium performance turret systems, on time, to satisfied customers with unique missions, environments, or volume constraints.

L3 Sonoma EO understands that each Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance mission is unique. Differences in platforms, altitude, range to target, vibration, shock, turret orientation and other factors requires consideration when developing a high-performance imaging system. We directly address these challenges with a modular architecture, trained personnel, streamlined business processes, and attention to detail to deliver quality, on time at the contracted price.

Built around a precision stabilization and geo-location modular architecture, additional sub-systems selection in sensors, shared aperture telescopes, laser subsystems and environmental control systems are rapidly integrated in a DOORS-controlled System Engineering process. Our business model leverages TRL-7 and higher sensor capability to customize solutions that meets specific stringent performance specifications.

L3 Sonoma's modular architecture is both a technical solution and an organizational approach, integrating world-class expertise. Functional engineering expertise from all disciplines, honed through years of meeting challenging technical and programmatic requirements, produce robust designs which are superior to COTS solutions in meeting your demanding mission needs. With depth of experienced, skilled and practical technical capability, including several published and industry acknowledged doctorate level technologists, L3 is widely acknowledged within the national labs and prime industry organizations as the go-to house to rapidly translate quick-reaction program requirements into low-risk production programs. Our experienced and technical program managers, working with our multi-skilled project engineers, black belt lean production experts, and customer requested field technicians and engineers, deliver fully compliant programs and products on time and within budget.

Our production and test facilities mirror our design and engineering capability through flexible and fully equipped production assembly and test cells. These areas are staffed with skilled and trained technicians able to assemble, integrate, test, and troubleshoot from component level to fully assembled turret systems. A robust staff of production engineers provides support, many of whom have spent time designing our systems, enabling deep understanding of system function, limits and capability. Our quality, purchasing and material handling groups are tightly integrated into the production teams, enabling end-to-end production agility and strength.

With years of experience in delivering EO/IR systems and solutions for special and fleet warfighter requirements, L3 Sonoma EO brings a highly sophisticated and process-focused systems engineering approach to program requirements, and is the right partner to rapidly deliver customized sensors, systems and data to successfully achieve program mission objectives.
