Astronics Corp announced today that Astronics Test Systems (ATS) has won a $36.4 million production contract to manufacture, test and deliver the Radio Frequency Distribution and Control System (RFDACS) and associated spare parts for US Navy’s fleet of submarines.

RFDACS is a major subsystem within the common submarine radio room that provides a means of routing signals and information between the various antenna systems and other submarine communication subsystems.

"The RFDACS is deployed on all active Virginia Class and Los Angeles Class submarines and designated for all future Virginia Class submarines," said Peter Gundermann, Chief Executive Officer and President of Astronics Corporation.

Astronics has approximately $4 million in backlog from its previous contract, which it expects to ship in 2015.
