Sparton Corporation announced that it was a key technical contributor to a recent Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) technical award given to Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) Division Newport. The award, given to NUWC’s Advanced Weapons Enhanced by Submarine Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) Against Mobile Targets (AWESUM) UAS/Tactical Data Link (TDL) Team, recognized the successful collaboration between NUWC and Sparton during a two-year Joint Capability Technology Demonstration effort that was independently assessed by U.S. Pacific Command. Sparton’s collaboration was instrumental in helping move this technology forward as a fiscal year 2017 program of record.

The AWESUM UAS/TDL Engineering Team completed the two-year Joint Capability Technology Demonstration effort to rapidly deliver the warfighter with the ability to discretely and quickly identify and defeat time-sensitive mobile targets in a denied environment.

NUWC Division Newport is one of two divisions of the Naval Undersea Warfare Center and is the Navy's full-spectrum research, development, test and evaluation, engineering, and fleet support center for submarine warfare systems and many other systems associated with the undersea battle space.

“The award presented to the NUWC team demonstrates the effectiveness of close collaborations between the Navy and Industry,” stated Jim Lackemacher, Group Vice President of the Engineered Components and Products Segment. “We are pleased to provide this new capability rapidly to the warfighter.”
