UTC Completes 1st Sonar Dome Window Delivery to Navy

United Technologies Corp.A business unit of United Technologies Corp. has handed to the U.S. Navy the first sonar dome window for integration with the service branch’s cruisers, destroyers and other vessels under a five-year contract.

The UTC Aerospace Systems-built rubber-based sonar dome window works to protect the naval ship’s sonar transducer array and help the vessel detect underwater targets, UTC said Tuesday.

The business unit received the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract from the Navy in April 2015.

UTC Aerospace Systems’ engineered polymer products team manufactures the sonar domes at its Florida facility for installation onboard the Navy’s CG-47, FFG-7 and DDG-51-class ships.

The EPP team at UTC Aerospace Systems also provides sonar dome repair, inspection and installation services to the service branch.
