Exelis (NYSE: XLS) will showcase industry-leading technologies to support the U.S. Army’s critical missions at two upcoming trade shows.

The first event, the Army Aviation Association of America (Quad-A) Annual Convention, takes place March 29-April 1 in Nashville, Tennessee. The Association of the U.S. Army (AUSA) Global Force Symposium is next, March 31-April 2 in Huntsville, Alabama.

Exelis supports the U.S. Army with a wide range of technologies and services.

At Quad-A, Exelis will emphasize EW solutions, including electronic protection and countermeasure suites, antennas and other systems to address emerging threats. Visit booth No. 1007 to learn more about:
