US-based company Sypris Electronics has secured a contract from Northrop Grumman for the supply of mission-critical electronic assemblies.

The multi-year award is in support of a US Department of Defense (DoD) programme.

The contract includes the production and testing of electronic assemblies for communication and navigation programme.

Sypris did not disclose the terms of the contract award. It will carry out production starting this year until 2021.

Sypris Electronics vice-president and general manager Jim Long said: “This was another important win for Sypris in the DoD sector of our business. This is a very significant government programme for our country and one we have been involved in with Northrop Grumman for many years.

“Northrop Grumman is a leader in these high reliability specialised military applications and our technical and operational strengths were key to this win.

“We are honoured to support the future growth of the programme and this opportunity to expand our relationship with Northrop.”

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.
