Sypris Awarded Expanded Scope on Electronic Warfare Program


Reading time ( words)

Sypris Electronics, LLC, a subsidiary of Sypris Solutions, Inc. announced that it has entered into an amendment to an existing multi-year supply agreement to include the production of electronic power logic assemblies for a large, mission-critical Navy program.

The amended contract, including options, now provides for the purchase of up to $77.0 million of assemblies from Sypris over the term of the agreement, representing a 39.5% increase in potential volume when compared to the original base contract announced earlier this year. In conjunction with the amendment, Sypris also received releases for the first year of production, with shipments scheduled to begin in 2023. Additional terms of the contract were not disclosed.

The modules to be produced by Sypris will be integrated into an electronic warfare improvement program for the U.S. Navy. According to news sources, the upgrade will provide the capability to actively jam incoming missiles that threaten a warship, cue decoys, and adapt quickly to evolving threats. The improvements to the electronic attack portion will provide integrated countermeasures against radio frequency-guided threats, according to the Navy.

The U.S. Naval Institute reported that the system’s capability for non-kinetic electronic attack options can be further deployed in additional critical areas. From advanced communications to multi-role waveforms, the multi-function applications of the system will provide enhanced mission capabilities to the U.S. Navy Fleet while presenting opportunities for future reductions in cost, size, weight, and power.

“We are pleased to expand our long-term partnership on and support of this important program,” said Mark R. Kane, Vice President & General Manager of Sypris Electronics. “Our engineering expertise, production capabilities and proven performance were essential to this win. We are certainly proud to increase our support for this strategic long-term upgrade program for the U.S. Navy that we believe to be critical to our National Defense.”

Book Excerpt: The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to Process Validation

It is assumed that readers are familiar with manufacturing electronic circuit assemblies in accordance with IPC-J-STD-001 or IEC 61189-1; both are titled “Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies.” In October 2018, IPC-J-STD-001 Revision G was amended and released with a new Section 8 of the document titled “Cleaning.” The change was primarily the removal of a “cleanliness” level of 1.56 mg/square cm of NaCl equivalence. This small change has great significance in relation to how companies ensure the electrochemical reliability of their products.
