Telephonics Corporation (Telephonics), a wholly owned subsidiary of Griffon Corporation (NYSE:GFF), announced today that it has been awarded a $5.4 Million contract from the Government of Israel Ministry of Defense to supply their AN/UPX-44A Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) Interrogator, including integration and sustainment support, on Israeli Navy vessels.
The AN/UPX-44A provides the Israeli Navy with a command and control battle management system with unprecedented surveillance capability. The real-time surveillance picture provides situational awareness of friendly, neutral and hostile activity, command and control of an area of responsibility, operations management, all-weather surveillance of the battle space, and early warning of adversary actions during joint, allied, and coalition operations. Telephonics has the only IFF interrogators that have achieved DoD AIMS certification in all modes including MARK XII, Mode 5, Mode S, and Multi-channel ADS-B.
“With fifty years of experience designing, developing, and delivering IFF systems throughout the world, Telephonics is uniquely qualified to field the most advanced interrogators in support of Israeli operations,” said Kevin McSweeney, Telephonics’ Chief Operating Officer. “We are very proud of our legacy of high-performing interrogators and excited about the future of this important product line.”
