Staff, news services

Erapsco Inc. has been awarded a $9.7 million contract to make 1,800 sonobuoys for the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division.

Sonobuoy sensors allow the Navy to detect, classify and locate other countries’ submarines during combat and peacetime operations.

The order exercises an option from a previously announced contract. The work is expected to be completed by November 2014.

Erapsco is a 50-50 partnership between Undersea Sensor Systems Inc. of Columbia City and Sparton Electronics Inc. of DeLeon Springs, Fla. The contract calls for 53 percent of the work to be done in Columbia City and the rest in DeLeon Springs.
