The Telephonics APS-143C(V)3 radar system will be deployed on the Mexican Navy's CN-235 OceanEye aircraft.

The "high-performance maritime surveillance radar… is durable, lightweight, highly reliable" and has "outstanding long-range, small-target detection," the company said in a news release.

Telephonics, a subsidiary of Griffon Corp., is subcontractor on a larger Mexican Navy contract managed by EADS Airbus Military.
