Sparton Corporation Awarded $4.5 million in Foreign Sonobuoy Contracts.
Sparton was previously awarded a $2.7 million contract by Australia for the AN/SSQ-62E DICASS sonobuoy in November 2009 which was delivered in December 2009.
"We are pleased to have won these opportunities to assist foreign nations in protecting their borders with leading-edge products manufactured by our Defense & Security Systems business unit," said Sparton President & CEO, Cary Wood. "These awards continue to demonstrate Sparton's deliberate progress into markets outside the U.S."
The primary purpose of a sonobuoy is to detect acoustic emissions or reflections from potentially hostile submarines and transmit these signals to airborne antisubmarine warfare forces. The SSQ-62E DICASS sonobuoy is an active acoustic sensor that is used in the final localization and attack phase of submarine prosecutions.
Headquartered in Illinois, Sparton is the only U.S.-owned designer and manufacturer of various sonobuoy products for the U.S. and other free-world nations.
