As a leader in the design, development and manufacture of sonobuoy systems for the U.S. Navy, Sparton is paving the way to be a leader in parallel technologies that align with current and future Navy roadmap technologies. Our partnership with the U.S. government is even more critical today as non-allied nations continue to increase their capabilities in undersea warfare. At least 41 nations operate over 450 submarines. In addition, the threat of mini-subs, hostile AUV/UUVs, and mines are expanding. Many of these threats require upgraded USW/ASW capabilities in Littoral waters. Sparton stands ready to deliver new capabilities that support the future USW/ASW ConOps and tactics, techniques and procedures.
