L-3 Fuzing and Ordnance Systems (L-3 FOS) has received a $32 million contract modification from the US Army for the M783 Point Detonating/Delay (PD/DLY) mortar fuze. For delivery to an international customer, the contract was awarded under the FMS programme.

The M783 is an advanced mortar fuze that provides a new level of safety and demonstrated field reliability in excess of 99% to the warfighter. We have produced more than 1.5 million of these fuzes, and this contract affirms L3’s ongoing commitment to deliver cost-effective, innovative solutions to the U.S. Army and its international allies,” said company president Rich Hunter.

The M783 is the U.S. Army’s next-generation, NATO-standard electronic PD/DLY fuze for mortars and is used to support close-range, indirect fire support to infantry units in combat operations. L-3 FOS specialises in the development and manufacture of advanced fuzing products, sensors and safety devices used in numerous artillery, mortar and air-dropped munitions, as well as rockets, missiles and other advanced weapon systems.
