Thales‘ defense and security group has received a $14M delivery order to repair dome sonars installed on the U.S. Navy‘s H-60 multimission helicopters.
The order falls under a previously awarded basic ordering agreement and will cover repairs on 50 airborne low frequency sonar domes through November 2020, the Defense Department said Wednesday.
The Navy will obligate $10.5M in working capital funds at the time of award.
Fifty percent of work will occur in Clarksburg, Md., and the remaining 50 percent will take place in Brest, France.
The industry team manufactures up to 20 AN/AQS-22 sonars per year, according to Raytheon.
