Sparton's set of standard processes, which is the basis for Maturity Level 3, is established and has improved over time.

Sparton DeLeon Springs, LLC, a leader in the design, development, and manufacture of sonobuoy systems for the U.S. Navy, is at the forefront of technologies that align with the Defense Department’s Undersea and Ground Warfare Technology roadmaps.
