Managers at Raytheon Missile Systems in Tucson, Ariz., sought the optimum electronic chassis for a weapons defense system used on combatant ships in the U.S. and 22 allied nations.

They found their solution at Colmek Systems Engineering in Salt Lake City, awarding the company a $1.5 million contract. Colmek Systems Engineering is a wholly owned subsidiary of Coda Octopus Group Inc., a maker of underwater terrorism-prevention solutions based in St. Petersburg, Fla.

The contract award calls for the upgraded design and production of electronic chassis for the Phalanx in-close weapons defense system. Phalanx employs advanced radar and infrared video technologies to locate and destroy incoming threats.

Colmek also gained $476,000 and $212,000 contract awards for work related to the U.S. Navy’s mine-hunting towfish. Colmek provides the airborne and land-based recording, display, and digital processing systems for the laser and sonar-based system aboard MH-53E helicopters.
