Telephonics Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Griffon Corporation, announced that it has been competitively awarded a contract to supply their APS-143C(V)3 as the multi-mode radar system for the United States Coast Guard’s HC-27J Spartan medium-range maritime surveillance platform.
The Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract, valued at $31.8M, was awarded by the U.S. Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD). The contract also provides for related engineering technical services and logistics support.
The APS-143C(V)3 maritime surveillance system offers a broad range of capabilities including long-range target search, detection and tracking in high sea-states, Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar (ISAR), Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), weather avoidance, and Search and Rescue Transponder (SART) beacon modes. The system will assist HC-27J operators during a variety of missions.
The contract work will be performed in Farmingdale, New York, and is expected to be completed in May 2023.
“Telephonics is extremely proud to support this important program, providing a maritime surveillance system designed to meet the demanding requirements of USCG missions,” said Kevin McSweeney, President of Telephonics. “The APS-143C(V)3 will provide enhanced radar capabilities to the USCG, enabling increased maritime awareness in support of their mission critical work.”
The APS-143C(V)3 is widely deployed on the USCG HC-144 Ocean Sentry aircraft, as well as other domestic and international platforms, and utilized in maritime surveillance, reconnaissance, search and rescue, law enforcement and border protection missions.
