A Teledyne Technologies (NYSE: TDY) subsidiary has won a five-year, $9.9 million contract to provide the U.S. Navy a flotation system designed to measure ocean salinity, temperature and water column properties.

Teledyne Webb Research will deliver Autonomous Profiling Explorer floats to the branch’s naval oceanographic office, the company said Thursday.

The APEX marine system is also built to perform measurements of dissolved oxygen, turbidity, chlorophyll and nutrient levels at sea.

Robert Mehrabian, president and CEO, said the company has been supplying autonomous marine profilers to customers since 1982.

Mehrabian added the company also offers unmanned underwater vehicle systems for the defense, scientific and energy sectors.
