Submarine device orders worth pounds 13m.

Defence and aerospace contractor Ultra Electronics said its submarine detection systems had pinged home pounds 13 million worth of new business.

The Middlesex-based company, which has a factory in Rugeley, manufactures the systems which are accoustic sensors called sonobuoys.

The company said it had won an order for 11,000 of its latest technology active sonobuoys from the French defence procurement agency, the DGA, and the Swedish Armed Forces Logistics Organisation had bought a range of sonobuoys. The Australian government is also buying both active and passive sonobuoys for the country's newly refitted anti-submarine warfare aircraft.
