In 2010, the company won an order from Northrop Grumman to provide electronic assemblies for communications, navigation and identification avionics used on Lockheed Martin-built F-35 Lightning II joint strike fighter aircraft.

Sypris received contracts from Harris in 2017 for the production of mission-critical electronic assemblies for several US military and space programmes.

The programmes included two satellite programmes, one for tracking the early development of storms, and the other designed to collect atmospheric data to improve weather forecasting accuracy.

Additionally, the company supplied electronic assemblies for a missile warning system and a military weapons system under the contract.
