boeing logoBoeing (NYSE: BA) subsidiary will provide another five AN/SLQ-25C torpedo defense systems to the U.S. Navy under a $6.5 million contract to design, develop and build the systems for Navy combatant ships.

The company said Tuesday its Argon ST business is the sole contractor on the program and will perform work at facilities in Lemont Furnace and Smithfield in Pennsylvania.
