The sales keep ringing up for Kaman’s Joint Programmable Fuzes. Its aerospace segment received a $93 million procurement order from an unnamed foreign government for delivery later this year through 2017.

In a statement, company officials said that drives the product’s backlog to over $300 million. Bloomfield-based Kaman is the only source of the product and has undertaken a significant expansion of its capacity to meet strong demand.
