De Leon Spring, Fla.-based Sparton said Wednesday it will produce a deployment packaging technology and a wireless communications buoy for Raytheon's Barracuda  mine neutralizer vehicle.

Barracuda will function as an autonomous unmanned underwater vehicle for the service branch to detect and mitigate bottom, near-surface and drifting mines.

Sparton will also support fabrication of the system.
