Marshall to Manufacture Sonobuoy Launcher Components

Design Modified for S92 and WILDCAT

Marshall Advanced Composites has been contracted by Honeywell UK to manufacture sonobuoy launch carousel assembly units, the company announced on 2 July.

The order, valued at £890,000 (€988,000) is for 21 carousel units and will be delivered through 2021-2022. The device – used to drop sonobuoys from maritime patrol aircraft – was originally developed for use on the NIMROD aircraft. The carousel, which holds ten sonobuoys, drops them through apertures in the aircraft deck and can be reloaded in flight. Marshall has been supplying sonobuoy carousel units to Honeywell for several and delivered its 100th unit last December last year. The company has updated the design so the device can be installed on S-92 and WILDCAT helicopters.

This is another great win for us and testament to the hard work and dedication of the composites team here in Kirkbymoorside,” said the company’s General Manager, Carl Morse.
