The UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) has awarded a two year contract worth £1 million to Cohort subsidiary SEA to provide technical support for a range of acoustic and sonar underwater systems onboard Royal Navy surface and sub-surface vessels, the company announced on 8 December.

The contract to deliver the MoD Underwater Systems Architecture Advisory Service combines all Maritime Combat System Underwater Electronic Warfare sonar support and advice requirements within a single programme for the first time.
