Sparton Corp. will team with Raytheon to support the design, test, and deployment of the next-generation Barracuda Mine Neutralization system.

"Sparton is excited to leverage our knowledge of maritime communication, packaging, and deployment systems for this new opportunity," said Jim Lackemacher, Group Vice President of the Engineered Components and Products Segment.
