: 04 December, 2009  (Application Story)
Lockheed Martin has placed an order on Telephonics to supply Multi-mode radar and Identification Friend or Foe systems for use on Maritime Strike Helicopters in the US Navy
Telephonics, a wholly owned subsidiary of Griffon, has announced that its radar systems Division received a requirements contract from Lockheed Martin for support of the AN/APS-147 Multi-Mode Radar (MMR) and Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) Interrogator System installed on the US Navy’s MH-60R Maritime Strike Helicopters. The Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity contract provides for repair of radar components at firm fixed prices over a five year period. The contract has an estimated value of $17 million.

The principal mission of the MH-60R multi-mission Helicopter is to protect the fleet from submarines and surface vessels and provide a maritime strike capability. The radar affords the Helicopter long-range search, imaging, and tracking capabilities for surface vessels and includes an advanced periscope detection mode. The IFF identifies cooperative targets in the area of operations and enables rapid sorting and prioritisation of targets of interest.

“Telephonics is dedicated to the support and maintenance of these radar systems for the US Navy’s Maritime Strike squadrons. This contract will ensure high mission capable rates and optimum combat readiness for the US Navy’s MH-60R fleet,” said Joseph Battaglia, President of Telephonics.

Telephonics’ radar systems Division supplies lightweight, high performance multi-mode maritime surveillance systems and IFF Interrogators. In addition to the AN/APS-147, Telephonics produces the AN/APS-508 for the Canadian CP-140 Aurora (P-3 derivative) aircraft, the APS-143C(V)3 for various U.S. and international customers, the RDR-1700B lightweight MMR, and a wide range of search and rescue and weather radar.
