Fire Scout Program Selects Telephonics’ AN/ZPY-4(V)1 Radar

Telephonics Corporation (Telephonics), a wholly owned subsidiary of Griffon Corporation (NYSE:GFF), announced today that it’s AN/ZPY-4(V)1 multi-mode maritime surveillance radar was selected by Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems for use on the US Navy’s MQ-8B Vertical Take-Off and Landing Tactical Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (VTUAV) as part of the US Navy Fire Scout radar “Rapid Deployment Capability” program.

For the MQ-8B platform, the radar is configured to uniquely enable the VTUAV to conduct broad area intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) missions from land and surface ships. The radar will be integrated to enable remote ground or sea-based control by US Navy operators. In conjunction with the on-board electro-optical sensor, the radar will markedly increase the VTUAV surveillance area rate coverage and operator efficiency.

“The integration of the AN/ZPY-4(V)1 multi-mode radar onto the MQ-8B Fire Scout will bring an all-weather sensor that provides wide area situational awareness capability to the platform,” said Mr. Kevin McSweeney, Telephonics’ Chief Operating Officer. “The AN/ZPY-4(V)1 will provide enhanced ISR benefits to the US Navy while performing sea and land based unmanned operations.”
