For Integration Into the U.S. Air Force B-52H Weapons Systems

Sypris Electronics, LLC, a subsidiary of Sypris Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq/GM: SYPR), announced today that it has recently received an award to produce and test electronic interface control assemblies for the U.S. Department of Defense Long-Range Standoff (LRSO) missile weapons system as part of the Nuclear Weapons Delivery Systems modernization program. Production is expected to begin in 2023. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

The assemblies to be produced by Sypris will be incorporated into the suite of strategic nuclear and tactical weapons systems of the U.S. Air Force B-52H long-range bomber. The LRSO weapon system is targeted to replace the nearly 40-year old AGM-86B Air-Launched Cruise Missile. According to news sources, the LRSO weapon system is being developed as a program that can penetrate and survive integrated air defense systems and attack strategic threats.

The LRSO Cruise Missile will launch from several other aircraft in addition to the B-52H. The system supports the U.S. triad of long-range nuclear systems, including submarine-based ballistic missles, silo-based ballistic missiles, and manned bomber aircraft. The LRSO is designed to guarantee that the bomber leg of the “triad” can support its part of the deterrence by providing a stealthy, low-flying weapon that reliably penetrates air defenses even when the aircraft carrying them cannot, according to

With the continued modernization of the B-52, the plane remains one of the most important aircraft in the U.S. Air Force bombers fleet. The B-52 is a critical contributor to the U.S. National Security Strategy, with its large payload, long range and ability to employ both nuclear and conventional precision standoff weapons for close air support or for strategic attack. The modernized B-52 is expected to remain in service through the year 2050, according to news sources.

“This recent award for Sypris further demonstrates customer confidence in our ability to manufacture and test high-reliability aircraft electronic assemblies that play a critical role in our national security,” said Mark Kane, Vice President & General Manager of Sypris Electronics. “We are honored to have this opportunity to participate on this program and to build a strategic partnership with this important new customer.”
