Telephonics to Deliver 160 AN/APS-153 Multi-Mode Radar Systems for US Navy

Lockheed Martin Mission Systems & Sensors has awarded the Radar Systems Division of Telephonics with a multi-year production contract. Valued at over $330 million, the full-scale production contract includes engineering support and delivery of 160 AN/APS-153 Multi-Mode Radar systems along with spares, for integration into the advanced mission avionics package and subsequent installation in the MH-60R Romeo helicopter for the US Navy.

The next-generation to the AN/APS-147, the AN/APS-153 radar features ARPDD (Automatic Radar Periscope Detection and Discrimination) capability and has been designed to provide maritime domain surveillance round-the-clock. In addition to the ARPDD capability, the AN/APS-153 also features Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar imaging, periscope and small target detection capability, short-range search and rescue capability and IFF (Identification Friend or Foe) interrogator capability. A fully-integrated mission system, the radar can be easily controlled using the onboard mission computer.

The President of Telephonics, Joseph J. Battaglia stated that the AN/APS-153 Multi-Mode Radar featuring the advanced ARPDD mode will provide the US Navy with the exceptional capability to perform dangerous and difficult missions.

Telephonics also offers the AN/APS-508 - CP-140 Aurora Integrated Radar IFF Subsystem, the APS-143C(V)3/OceanEye and the RDR-1700B Search, Surveillance, Tracking and Weather Avoidance Radar System in addition to aerospace electronics, aircraft intercommunication systems, integrated security systems, wireless communication systems and air traffic management systems.
