Telephonics Receives SFF-44A Contract Award from Saab for Giraffe AMB Radar Platform

Telephonics Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Griffon Corporation (NYSE: GFF), announced today that it has received a contract award from the defense and security company Saab, for an initial order of Small Form Factor Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) interrogator systems, model SFF-44A. This cost-effective system will be integrated on Saab's ground-based Giraffe AMB (Agile Multi-Beam) radar platform and provides a clear surveillance picture, which supports the user in making quick tactical decisions while protecting against air threats.

The SFF-44A is a reduced size and weight, All-Mode IFF interrogator that retains all the key capabilities of Telephonics' AIMS certified AN/UPX-44A, the system currently used globally on a variety of air, ground, and maritime platforms. Additionally, the SFF-44A operates at a reduced transmitter power. The SFF-44A interrogators will be manufactured at Telephonics' Long Island production facilities with deliveries set to begin in early 2017.

"Telephonics looks forward to strengthening our relationship with Saab, following the integration of our industry-leading IFF technologies with Saab's world class radar systems," Mr. McSweeney added.
