NEWTOWN, Conn. -- The AQS-18(V) anti-submarine warfare lightweight active/passive dipping sonar system (an export version of the AQS-13F as used by the U.S. Navy and allies) continues to be marketed through extensive promotion of the system's practicality for light ASW helicopters. Produced by L3 Ocean Systems, this helicopter-borne dipping sonar presents a highly desirable solution for many ASW applications, especially smaller platforms that have limited helicopter operation facilities.

As a large number of the light frigates entering service have facilities for light helicopters only, they will primarily carry general-purpose types; however, these will include a number of ASW-dedicated aircraft, opening up a market opportunity for the AQS-18(V).

Furthermore, the high number of AQS-18(V) sonars already in service worldwide would suggest a continuing upgrade and maintenance market. All this activity should provide opportunity for enhancements, upgrades, and new variants.

Potential sales of light helicopters for maritime use may also open new markets for the AQS-18(V) sonar series.

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- The Radant Technologies Division of Communications & Power Industries (CPI) has received a $4.1 million firm-fixed price contract to support the U.S. Air Force's B-52 aircraft. The approximately two-year contract, which was awarded by Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Aviation, calls for new forward nose radomes to replace existing radomes on the B-52 aircraft. These replacement radomes are expected to be higher performance and more supportable than the previous forward nose radomes on the long-range strategic bomber. Headquartered in Stow, Mass., CPI's Radant Technologies Division has provided radomes for the U.S. Air Force fleet of B-52 aircraft for several years. In 2011, DLA Aviation awarded Radant Technologies a seven-year, $45 million contract to replace aged and unsupportable radomes under the B-52 Radomes Replacement Program.

"The B-52 aircraft is expected to remain a key asset for the U.S. Air Force beyond 2040, and it is critical for its suppliers to be dependable and to provide reliable, state-of-the-art products. CPI Radant Technologies Division has proven that it is up for the challenge and is proud of its 100 percent on-time delivery record for this program," said Tim Smith, president of CPI Radant Technologies Division.
