Manufacturing

L3 Unamanned Systems (US) has manufacturing capabilities that allow us to be nimble and efficient; from design to prototype to production.

Machine Shop
L3 Unmanned Systems’ machine shop combines the expertise of master craftsmen and Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) machining technologies to provide precision parts for prototype and product assemblies. Designs created in state of the art 3-D design software formats are brought to life using 5-axis and 3-axis CNC technologies for prototypes and high-rate production. In addition to our state-of-the-art machining capability, our craftsmen provide decades of conventional hands-on fabrication, allowing for custom material work, and rework for prototypes and low-rate production assemblies.

Composite Material Shop
The composite material shop at L3 US manufactures parts of all shapes and sizes; from small parts such as two-stroke engine cooling ducts to large parts, including composite airframes. Skilled technicians can create multi-dimensional composite assemblies using molds created on our CNC machining technologies. Our shop has expertise working with Kevlar®, Carbon Fiber, Fiberglass and other composite material and is capable of fabricating precise/complex parts for your requirements.

Electrical Assembly Design, Manufacturing and Integration
L3 US is equipped to design, manufacture and integrate electric standalone products or sub-assemblies. Our expert designers and technicians can create, manufacture and integrate UAS assemblies, wire harnesses, cable assemblies and non-UAS electric products.

UAS Integration and Final Assembly
System integration and final assembly are just part of the services we can provide in our state-of-the-art full-service facility for unmanned aircraft systems, including air vehicles and ground control stations (GCS). Our large, well equipped and flexible integration and final assembly areas are capable of handling multiple projects on time-critical schedules. Our experienced system integrators and assemblers have experience in miniature, small, tactical and mid-tier unmanned aircraft and ground control stations.

UAS Rapid Prototyping and Component Manufacturing
L3 Unmanned Systems has the ability to produce quick turn UAV airframes and components. Our rapid prototyping department can go from concept to flight line expeditiously. Our prototype component manufacturing can accurately produce your design in our state-of-the-art facility.
