Ultra will continue to supply sonobuoys for the Royal Navy’s Merlin Maritime Patrol Helicopter from 2022 to 2024.
The contract between Ultra and the MOD comes at an important time, boosting both the economy and jobs in the UK.
The contract for sonobuoy engineering, manufacturing, logistics and support from Ultra, ensures the Royal Navy maintains a persistent Anti-Submarine Warfare surveillance capability against hostile submarines.

We look forward to working with the Defence Equipment & Support Merlin Delivery Team to supply and support cutting edge, affordable and valuable anti-submarine (ASW) solutions. This investment by the Ministry of Defence enables the UK’s Armed Forces to deal with modern and evolving submarine threats.”
