Jeff Brody

ERAPSCO, a joint venture of Sparton and Ultra Electronics, has been awarded a potential $1.04B contract to build and deliver sonobuoys to the U.S. Navy from fiscal 2019 through fiscal 2023.

The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract covers the production of 932,500 AN/SSQ-62F, AN/SSQ-53G, AN/SSQ-36B and AN/SSQ-101B sonobuoys, the Department of Defense said Thursday.

Fifty-one percent of work will occur in De Leon Spring, Fla., and the remaining 49 percent will take place in Columbia, Ind.

The Pentagon expects ERAPSCO to finish services under the contract by September 2025.

Sonobuoys are designed to transmit underwater audio to submarines and ships using built-in electromechanical acoustic sensors.
