WASHINGTON, June 4, 2007 -- Kollmorgen Electro-Optical of Northampton, Mass., is being awarded a $6,580,913 contract for production of eight universal modular mast (UMM) systems by the Naval Sea Systems Command, the Defense Department announced.

The contract provides for development and acquisition of a nonhull penetrating mast that serves as a lifting mechanism for five sensor configurations (the photonics mast, the multifunction mast, the integrated electronic mast, the high-data-rate mast and the photonics mast variant) on Virginia Class and SSGN Class submarines, the department said. Each sensor is mounted on a UMM.

Work will be performed in Northampton, Mass. (20 percent) and at Kollmorgen Electro-Optical's subsidiary Calzoni Srl, in Bologna, Italy (80 percent) -- and is expected to be completed by May 2009. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year.

Kollmorgen Electro-Optical, a subsidiary of Danaher Corp., makes sensor and weapon systems for submarines, surface ships, combat vehicles and other defense platforms.
