CPI Aerostructures Inc., an Edgewood aerospace manufacturer, has won a contract worth about $2.7 million to work on pods that house electronics on the U.S. Navy’s EA-18G Growler aircraft to jam enemy radar and communications, the company announced Tuesday.

The contract was awarded by Raytheon Co., which received a $1 billion sole source contract from the U.S. Navy in April to produce the jamming pods for 135 Growlers, which are carrier-based electronic warfare aircraft.

CPI’s contract calls for the company to make air management system door and duct assemblies for the pods’ structural housing.

Shares of CPI edged down 1 cent to $6.48 in midday trading.
