ERAPSCO will develop sonobuoys for the U.S. Navy under a $166 million contract that Sparton President and CEO Cary B. Wood said is part of the company’s mission to provide products that fulfill defense clients’ requirements.
ERAPSCO, a joint venture between Sparton and Ultra Electronics Holdings, was awarded the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to manufacture the sonar systems, Sparton said Wednesday.
“We are firmly committed to development of innovative technology and to providing the U.S. Navy with the highest quality products that help further its mission, ” Wood said.
Work will occur through June 2020 at both Sparton and Ultra’s respective facilities in Florida and Indiana.
