Honeywell orders sonobuoy launch carousels

3rd July 2020 - 15:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Marshall Advanced Composites has received a £890,000 ($1.1 million) order from Honeywell for 21 sonobuoy launch carousel assembly units.

The units will be delivered in 2021 and 2022.

The carousel assembly was originally designed for use on the Nimrod MPA to drop submarine-seeking sonobuoys.

Each carousel holds 10 sonobuoys, which are dropped through apertures in the aircraft floor and can be reloaded in-flight.

Carousel units can also be installed on H-92 and AW159 Wildcat helicopters.

Marshall has been supplying sonobuoy carousel units to Honeywell for several years, delivering its 100th unit to the company in December 2019.
