Griffon’s wholly-owned subsidiary Telephonics has demonstrated its MOSAIC Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar system on a US Navy MH-60S Seahawk multi-mission helicopter.

During flight demonstrations conducted over the Mid-Atlantic region, Telephonics showcased AESA’s discriminating capabilities including Autonomous Anti-Surface Warfare radar operations and true dual beam technology for the first time.

H-60 Multi-Mission Helicopters (PMA-299) programme manager Todd Evans said: “This new generation AESA radar has the potential to provide great benefit to the future vertical lift platform.”

The dual-beam technology of Telephonics uses two independent beams from a single radar aperture.

It allows the MOSAIC radar system to perform continuous autonomously scheduled Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar (ISAR) imaging while conducting surveillance, detection and tracking operations at the same time.

This is expected to reduce the time needed to complete operations related to the recognised maritime picture.

Telephonics president Kevin McSweeney said: “We are excited to introduce our MOSAIC AESA system to the marketplace.

“We are known as an innovator in design and development of maritime surveillance systems, and with the numerous advanced modes developed exclusively for this radar, we believe we have a solution that exceeds current AESA capabilities.”

In September last year, the US Navy’s Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) delivered the first two redesigned MH-60S Seahawk gunner seats to the fleet.

During August, Telephonics secured a contract to supply its AN/UPX-44 Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) system in support of the Republic of Korea (ROK) naval modernisation programmes.
