The Army will reconsider a $323 million award to Boeing.

The contract is for a new intelligence-gathering plane.

Published reports say the Army is pulling that award after protests from bidders, including Northrop Grumman and L-3 Communications.

The Army will re-evaluate the competition and make a new award in the near future.
