Telephonics Corporation awarded multi-year full scale production contract for delivery of 139 AN/APS-147 Multi-Mode Radar Systems for the U.S. Navy's MH-60R multi-mission helicopter

Telephonics Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Griffon Corporation (NYSE:GFF) announced today its Radar Systems Division has been awarded a multi-year, full-scale production contract valued in excess of $318M from Lockheed Martin Systems Integration, Owego, NY. This modification to a previously awarded contract includes the delivery of 139 production AN/APS-147 Multi-Mode Radar (MMR) systems, plus spares and engineering support. These systems will be integrated into the Lockheed Martin advanced mission avionics package and installed on the U.S. Navy's MH-60R "Sea Hawk" helicopters.

The AN/APS-147 radar was designed to meet the demanding mission needs of the Navy's helicopter community in the blue water and littoral sea environment in all weather conditions, day and night providing maritime domain surveillance superiority. Important advanced features of this radar include: small target detection, Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar (ISAR) imaging, and a unique, fully internally integrated, Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) interrogator capability which is readily upgradeable to include Modes 5 and S.

"The AN/APS-147 MMR is a highly capable radar system incorporating advanced features which will serve Naval Aviation well for many years to come", said Joseph J. Battaglia, President of Telephonics Corporation. "We are proud to support Lockheed Martin and the U.S. Navy and to be a member of Team Sea Hawk".
