Sparton Corporation, an Elbit Systems of America company, announced that it had received a vendor status under the United States Navy’s sonobuoy Multiple Award Delivery Order Contract (MADOC). With MADOC vendor status, Sparton qualifies to compete for annual delivery orders for each sonobuoy variant that may be needed by the service.

Sparton President and CEO Tracy Howard, said “The U.S. Navy’s sonobuoy MADOC is a significant award and is a testament to our longtime support of the U.S. Navy’s Maritime Undersea Warfare campaign. We are proud to continue to provide reliable, cost-effective, and technologically advanced sensors to our Warfighters whenever called upon.”

Sparton has been a trusted sonobuoy supplier since 1951. Sonobuoys are expendable sensors deployed by Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) aircraft and used to detect underwater sound. Sparton is a world leader in the design, development, testing and production of complex maritime electronic systems including sonobuoys in support of ASW.

“Our mission at Elbit Systems of America is to help protect and save lives and to strengthen U.S. national security with our solutions”, said Elbit Systems of America President and CEO Raanan Horowitz. “Sparton’s sonobuoys provide American forces the critical technology needed to execute their missions at sea with a full operating picture.”

Sparton was purchased by Elbit Systems of America in 2021, adding their extensive maritime capabilities to the company’s diverse enterprise that spans airborne and land-based solutions, homeland security, medical instrumentation, and more.

A limitation of many 3D optical inspection systems is the cycle time typically associated with processing millions of pixels to reconstruct a full 3D image using data captured from multiple channels. There should not be a compromise between 3D inspection and throughput. A successful inspection deployment should provide oversight for the process, not compromise, interrupt or slow that process.
