By George Seffers

Argon ST, Smithfield, Pennsylvania, is being awarded a $14,792,994 firm-fixed-priced indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for procurement of four AN/SLQ-25A/C systems and spare parts. AN/SLQ-25A/C is a digitally controlled, modular design, electro-acoustic softkill countermeasure decoy system. The system defends ships against wake homing, acoustic homing, and wire-guided torpedoes. This contract combines purchases for the U.S. Navy, and under the Foreign Military Sales Program, the government of Canada. The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington D.C., is the contracting activity.
