FARMINGDALE, N.Y. Communication and information systems provider Telephonics Corp. has been awarded year two of a multiyear, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) production contract -- valued at approximately $37 million -- by Lockheed Martin for providing naval helicopters with AN/APS-153(V)1 radar retrofit kits with automatic radar periscope detection and discrimination (ARPDD) capability.

The award -- part of phase three of the U.S. Navy’s ARPDD Retrofit Program -- is a follow-on phase to a previously awarded multiyear contract.  Under the terms of the contract, Telephonics ARPDD systems will be installed on the U.S. Navy’s MH-60R Sea Hawk helicopters, providing advanced maritime and littoral surveillance.

The AN/APS-153(V)1 radar system, together with the ARPDD, provides the naval helicopters with such advanced search capabilities as small target detection, inverse synthetic aperture radar (ISAR) imaging, and a fully integrated identification friend or foe (IFF) interrogator.

Telephonics -- a wholly owned subsidiary of Griffon Corp. -- will begin delivery of the retrofit kits in spring 2018.
