Company officials say most layoffs will be at four Baltimore-area locations: the Electronic Systems division's Linthicum headquarters and facilities in Annapolis, Sykesville and Elkridge. Locations in Virginia, Connecticut and Florida will also be affected.

Employees whose jobs are eliminated will be notified on Tuesday, and their last day of work will be May 31.

Officials say 600 employees were approved for buyouts, mostly in Maryland, but there were enough to avoid layoffs. The company announced in March it was cutting about 500 jobs, mostly in the Baltimore area because of a slowdown in defense spending. The division employs about 8,000 people in the Baltimore area.
