FARMINGDALE, N.Y. -- Telephonics Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Griffon Corporation has been awarded a support contract from Lockheed Martin for its AN/APS-153(V) Multi-Mode Maritime Surveillance Radar (MMR) and Communication System Control Group (CSCG) products supporting the U.S. Navy's MH-60R and MH-60S maritime helicopters. The initial contract has a five-year base, running through 2025, and a two-year option with a contract value of $162 million with current funded backlog of $84 million.

Through this award, part of the U.S. Navy's Performance Based Logistics (PBL) contract in support of the MH-60R and MH-60S, Telephonics will conduct spares procurement, supply test equipment, and complete repair/replacement work on critical components of both the MMR and CSCG products supporting aircraft sustainment needs. The AN/APS-153(V) is an advanced radar system providing flight crews of the MH-60R with enhanced littoral and maritime domain awareness, while the CSCG is the communication backbone of both aircraft, providing the aircrews access to military and Air Traffic Control (ATC) radios, radio navigation aids, and onboard intercommunication nets.

WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio -- The U.S. Air Force awarded Centauri of Chantilly, Virginia, a division of KBR, an $11.1 million ($12.1 cumulative) cost-plus-fixed-fee contract (FA8650-21-C-7115) for the Moving Target Recognition (MTR) effort. Under the terms of the contract, Centauri will develop algorithms and collection techniques to enable synthetic aperture radar (SAR) sensors to detect, geolocate, and image moving ground targets. This award is the result of a competitive acquisition.

The U.S. Department of Defense revealed that the technology's emphasis will be on military vehicle targets, including slow moving vehicles whose SAR signatures are superimposed on clutter.

The contracted work will be performed in Ann Arbor, Michigan and Navarre, Florida, and is expected to be completed by January 30, 2024. The U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, is the contracting activity.
