Telephonics Corp.’s Radar Systems and Communication and Electronic Systems Divisions opened a facility in Alabama that is to produce high-fidelity modeling and simulations of air and missile defense threat systems.
High-technology engineering for integrated information, communication and sensor system solutions for military applications and platforms will be performed at the Huntsville, Ala., facility, which is designed to conduct analysis of missile, radar and combat systems, the company says.
The facility will enable Telephonics and SEG to provide hardware, technical support, maintenance and high-end systems engineering services to our customers, said Joseph Battaglia, Telphonics’ president and chief executive officer, which has headquarters in New York.
The proximity to the U.S. Army base Redstone Arsenal—which is adjacent to Huntsville and which is the focal point of the Army’s rocket and space projects—will facilitate Telephonics’ ability to expand it role with new and existing customers, Battaglia said. Telephonics can show it is not only a provider of the engineering, advanced systems and technologies that are needed for customers to better perform their missions, but also to ensure these systems are reliable, meet the users’ operational and mission requirements and are available when needed, he said.
