IN BRIEF: Boeing to provide torpedo defense systems to Navy

Boeing subsidiary Argon ST will continue to supply U.S. Navy surface ships with countermeasures that lure torpedoes away by mimicking a vessel's propulsion system. The Navy exercised a $8 million contract option, which covers production and delivery of eight new AN/SLQ-25C systems under the Navy's Surface Ship Torpedo Defense program. The electro-acoustic towed decoy system can communicate with its host ship's network for an integrated defense capability, and defeats a torpedo's passive sonar by emitting simulated ship noise.
