Telephonics awarded contract by ARMDEC Prototype Integration Facility for secure intercommunication system on UH-60M COMHAWK

Telephonics Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Griffon Corporation (NYSE:GFF) announced today it has received a contract award from Joint Venture Yulista SES (JVYS) in support of the US Army's Aviation and Missile Research, Development and Engineering Center's (ARMDEC) Prototype Integration Facility (PIF) to provide the Intercommunications System (ICS) for the UH-60M COMHAWK helicopters. The UH-60M COMHAWK aircraft is a UH-60M system with additional unique avionics and mission equipment, which will be used to provide mobility and command and control (C 2) functions for Battlefield Commanders in the forward area of a combat environment. Telephonics will supply an Intercommunications system for the unique C 2 console based upon its advanced Secure Digital Intercommunications (SDI) system and components of its TruLink wireless intercommunications system. The C 2 console ICS will be integrated with the existing flight deck ICS and the unique COMHAWK mission equipment. The flight deck ICS is the US Army Common Digital Intercommunication SDI system as supplied by Telephonics on the standard UH-60M. SDI is a TEMPEST-qualified intercommunication system, which manages all of the crew audio communication and radio/navigation resources aboard the aircraft. The U.S. Army has selected SDI as the Common Digital Intercommunication System for its aviation platforms. In addition to its use in the UH-60M Black Hawk's cockpit, it is being installed on all Army CH-47F Chinooks, MH-47's and MH-60's of the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (Airborne) and on the ARH-70A Armed Reconnaissance Helicopter. TruLink is a wireless communication system that provides full duplex, voiceactivated, hands-free mode between airborne and dismounted crewmembers. It has been selected by PEO Soldier as the Air Warrior Aircraft Wireless Intercom System (AWIS).

The PIF is a government-owned, government-operated facility that rapidly transitions concepts into fielded solutions for the U.S. Army Aviation & Missile Command (AMCOM), the Department of Defense, and ultimately, the warfighter.
