Telephonics awarded second contract with Kazan Helicopters

Telephonics Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Griffon Corporation, today announced a second contract from the Russian manufacturer of the world-renowned Mi-8/17 family of helicopters, Kazan Helicopters, part of the Russian Helicopters company. Telephonics will supply eighty-five (85) RDR-1600 weather avoidance search and rescue radars to Kazan for installation on the Mi-17V-5 helicopters for delivery to the Indian Air Force.

The RDR-1600, a high-performance airborne, weather avoidance, and surveillance radar has been chosen by many end-users for its long detection range and reliable performance in extreme conditions. The system provides the Indian Air Force with a lightweight solution for their all-weather operations. With the addition of weather alert, beacon detection, and ground mapping operational modes, the RDR-1600 delivers accurate and precise information to the flight crew, enhancing both mission effectiveness and safety.

This is the second time Telephonics' RDR-1600 radar has been chosen by Kazan Helicopters after the successful introduction, integration and delivery of 93 systems for the Indian Air Force Mi-17V-5 helicopters. "Being chosen by Kazan and the Indian Air Force for the second time demonstrates the effectiveness and reliability of the RDR-1600 in challenging environments," said Mr. Kevin McSweeney, Telephonics' Chief Operating Officer. "We're pleased to partner with Kazan Helicopters in support of the Indian Air Force"

Deliveries to Kazan will begin in early summer of 2013, with final deliveries to complete in 2014.
