The equipment will allow the Royal Navy to continue to conduct anti-submarine surveillance.

President of Sonobuoy Systems welcomed the ongoing agreement.

“I am very excited and appreciate the Royal Navy choosing Ultra for this three-year follow-on sonobuoy contract. We look forward to working with the Defence Equipment & Support Merlin Delivery Team to supply and support cutting-edge, affordable and valuable anti-submarine (ASW) solutions.
