Under the contract its subsidiary, J+S, will continue to support the Magazine Torpedo Launch System (MTLS), the SeaGnat decoy launcher and a range of Air Weapons Handling equipment used on board UK RN ships.

In 1983, J+S designed the MTLS system and has supported it in service ever since, it was then awarded the role of delegated design authority and support contractor for SeaGnat in 2008 and for the Air Weapons Handling Equipment in 2011. This new contract brings together the support of these three systems.

In addition to being a core part of its UK maritime support business, this contract will support SEA’s growing export business, proving an important reference with the UK Royal Navy. Within the last 12 months, the company has won export contracts in excess of £20 million (€27 million) for its Torpedo Launch System.

Steve Hyde, Head of Maritime Combat Systems at DES&S, during a visit to the Barnstaple site said: “J+S has consistently provided excellent support services to the Royal Navy, and I am delighted that it will continue this support of core MoD weapons systems.”

Steve Hill, Managing Director of SEA, said: “I am very proud of the team at J+S. Not only will this contract enable us to continue our critical support of the UK Royal Navy, but it also acts as a clear indicator of how SEA is continuing to strengthen its growing export business in this area.”
