Edo Awarded $11.4-Million Increase To Navy Contract For Sonar Modifications

The Naval Sea Systems Command has exercised an option, under a previous letter contract with Edo Corporation, in the amount of $11,401,000 covering improvements to 12 AN/SQR-18A sonar systems, converting them to AN/ SQR-18A(V) 1 systems. This procurement includes ancillary spares, technical data, and field engineering services. Pending finalization of the price, the Navy has provided initial funding of $6.5 million.

In announcing the Navy order, Frank Fariello, president of Edo's Government Systems Division, stated: "These improvements will significantly enhance operational performance of the AN/SQR-18A systems currently in the Navy.

There are approximately 40 systems to which these improvements are applicable; this award brings to 18 the number of systems for which modifications have been procured. Further improvements to the systems are in the discussion stage with the Navy." Work on this new contract will be done at the Division's facility in College Point, N.Y.
