Boeing's Argon ST Providing Navy Torpedo Defense Decoys

BoeingLogoBoeing‘s Argon ST subsidiary has won a $8,563,195 U.S. Navy contract modification to provide the branch countermeasure decoy systems for defending against torpedoes, the Defense Department said Monday.

The subsidiary will also provide systems to Australia’s government under the foreign military sales program.

Under the firm-fixed-price delivery order modification, the company will provide eight AN/SLQ-25A/C systems and spares, which the Pentagon said is for supporting undersea defensive warfare programs.

Work will occur in Smithfield, Pa. through May 2015 and the Navy is obligating all funds at the time of award.

No funds will expire at the end of the current fiscal year and the Naval Sea Systems Command in Washington is the contracting activity.
