Exelis has won a contract to supply sonobuoy launchers and carriage and release systems for the U.S. Navy's P-8A Poseidon multimission maritime aircraft.
Exelis will supply systems that will include rotary, single-shot sonobuoy pneumatic launchers and pneumatic carriage and release equipment. The Exelis-designed Sonobuoy Launching System (SLS) is planned to provide aircrews with a high-performance airborne launching capability.
"Unlike conventional launch devices, the Exelis SLS employs compressed air, rather than electro-explosive charges, to deploy payloads," said Pete Martin, director of defense systems for the Exelis electronic attack & release systems business.
Introduced into service in 2012, the P-8A Poseidon is a modified Boeing 737 airliner designed to engage submarines and surface ships. Deliveries of the Exelis SLS will begin in October 2014.
