Telephonics gets $33.2 million Army contract
Farmingdale-based defense contractor Telephonics Corp. has received a $33.2 million U.S. Army contract to supply encrypted intercommunications systems through 2017.
The “encrypted aircraft wireless intercom system” will give Army aviators “the ability to safely communicate and convey critical commands,” said the office of Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) in an announcement Friday about the contract.
Telephonics is a subsidiary of Manhattan-based Griffon Corp. The unit specializes in airborne maritime surveillance radar and aircraft intercom systems.
