Ultra Electronics has been awarded a US$23 million contract modification to produce MK54 MOD 0 lightweight torpedo (LWT) array kits and supporting material and services.
The contract combines purchases for the U.S. government, and the governments of the Netherlands, Belgium, New Zealand, Spain, and Brazil under the Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program. The contract option is for year three of the MK54 MOD 0 LWT array kits programme to supply array nose assembly kits, the company said in a press release.
“As we continue to provide critical components of the MK54 lightweight torpedo, we understand the ongoing need to deliver reliable and effective undersea warfare capabilities to meet the anti-submarine warfare needs of U.S. and allied fleets,” said Martin Lewis, President of Naval Systems and Sensors.
