Sparton Corporation (NYSE:SPA) announces that Aydin Displays, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sparton, has been awarded an initial order valued at $1.8 million to supply, over the next six months, an upgraded rugged LCD display with an enhanced LED backlight for the Tactical Tomahawk Weapon Control System (TTWCS). The total contract, with multi-year options, has a potential value of approximately $5.0 million. The displays will be delivered over a three year period.
