Tracor Hydronautics, Inc., Laurel, Md., a subsidiary of Tracor, Inc., has received a multimillion-dollar contract from FlightSafety International to provide a shiphandling simulator to support a program for the U.S. Navy's Surface Warfare Officers School in Newport, R.I.

William M. Pugh, president of Tracor Hydronautics, said development of the simulator will be performed in Laurel, under the management of Eugene R. Miller, technical director.
