Mahindra Telephonics Integrated Systems (MTIS) first private sector entity to produce airborne weather radars in India

Mahindra Defense Systems, a Mahindra Group company, and Telephonics Corporation, A Griffon Company (NYSE:GFF), announce that their Joint Venture in India, Mahindra Telephonics Integrated Systems (MTIS) initiated the manufacture of the RDR Series of Airborne Weather Radars at their Prithla facility near Delhi. This is the first airborne radar manufactured in the private sector in India.

MTIS was incorporated in April 2013 to leverage the prestigious brand name in India of Mahindra and Mahindra with the globally recognized world class aerospace and defense technology from Telephonics Corporation. Initial transfer of technology was for the manufacture of transducers used for both commercial and aerospace applications. Over 16,000 have been produced since December 2013. MTIS manufactured the first airborne weather radar assembly in March 2015.

With the capability to manufacture airborne radars, MTIS has positioned itself to support the" Made In India" mandate for the India Aerospace and Defense Sector. Compared to other Indian industrial groups in the Aerospace and Defense arena, Mahindra Group has established a clear lead.

"MTIS continues to make significant progress in its charter to build an indigenous capability to support aerospace and defense programs leveraging the advanced technologies offered by our partner Telephonics," said Mr. SP Shukla, Member of the Group Executive Board of Mahindra & Mahindra Limited and Group President, Aerospace and Defence.

"Manufacturing of our RDR airborne weather radar is a key milestone. We are pleased with both the progress MTIS has made and with the support of our joint venture partner, Mahindra and Mahindra." expressed Mr. Joseph Battaglia, President and CEO of Telephonics.
