TAMPA, Fla.—Sypris Electronics, LLC, a subsidiary of Sypris Solutions, Inc. recently received a follow-on award from a U.S. DoD prime contractor to manufacture and test electronic power supply modules for a mission-critical, long-range, precision-guided anti-ship missile system. The contract calls for an increase in production volume from existing levels beginning in 2022, according to a release from Sypris Electronics.
The program is designed to meet the needs of U.S. Navy and Air Force warfighters. The missile system employs sophisticated precision routing and guidance capabilities.

Kane, vice president and general manager of Sypris Electronics, in the release. “Our customer is a worldwide leader in the development and delivery of advanced technologies for the commercial and military electronics markets.
