Sperry Gets $62.8-Million Navy Contract For Frigate Combat Systems Work
Sperry Corporation has been awarded a $62.8-million definitized contract by the U.S. Naval Sea Systems Command for engineering, development, integration, and production support of combat systems on 11 Perry Class (FFG-7) guided-missile frigates.
New COPPER BLAST is a premiumquality, all-purpose copper slag abrasive with more cleaning power for your money. COPPER BLAST is wellscreened to retain only the particles that do the job. You don't pay for dust which does no work.
COPPER BLAST gives you consistently superior cutting with angular, low free silica abrasive particles many buyers can use again and again. Because COPPER BLAST works harder and faster than dusty abrasives, job time goes down and cost effectiveness goes up.
Best copper-slag abrasive you can buy.
Recent laboratory tests found COPPER BLAST has a 50% cutting advantage over lower-quality copper slags and The four-year contract is a continuation of Sperry's system work on the FFG-7 ships under the latest Navy shipbuilding program. Sperry has participated in this program for the past 12 years. The combat system on the FFG-7 is designed as an integrated multi-mission system to provide simultaneous anti-air, antisurface, and anti-submarine warfare combat capabilities.
Under the contract, Sperry will perform combat system evaluation, cleans up to four times faster than many silica sands.
COPPER BLAST gives you uniform blasting rates and anchor patterns.
Uniformly-sized particles (in six grades) control the profile.
Low free silica and low dust equal safety.
With COPPER BLAST, workers can see and have greater protection from silicosis, (a form of lung disease).
The free silica content of Copper Blast is not detectable by standard laboratory methods. COPPER BLAST meets all current EPA, NIOSH and OSHA chemical limits.
COPPER BLAST will be ready when your job is ready. We have large quantities in storage and a network of local test, and prove out major changes to the combat system, and integrate key electronic equipment prior to installation aboard each new ship.
The equipment includes fire control systems, communications systems, command and control systems, and electronic warfare systems.
Work on this contract is being done at Great Neck and Ronkonkoma, N.Y., and at Arlington, Va.
