With over 6 million sonobuoys deployed to the United States and foreign* customers over the past 60 years, Sparton continues to serve as a vital supplier to these militaries with the most effective anti-submarine warfare sensor capability.
U.S. Specification Sonobuoys are sold through ERAPSCO, a joint venture between Sparton Corporation and Ultra Electronics – USSI.
