SAAB chooses maritime surveillance radar from Telephonics

Telephonics Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of Griffon Corp., announced on Feb. 6 that its RDR-1700B radar was chosen for Piaggio Aero’s extended-wing Maritime Patrol Aircraft (MPA). 
SAAB, working directly with Piaggio Aero, has chosen the RDR-1700B for its advanced maritime surveillance capabilities, says a Telephonics news release. The radar will serve on MPA aircraft for all maritime surveillance missions, providing airborne maritime patrol, search and rescue functionality, economic exclusion zone patrol, fisheries protection, and integrated Automatic Identification System. 
“The diversity of the RDR-1700B enables it to be more than a maritime radar, it can easily switch to overland or littoral surveillance, providing consistent situational awareness for operators of the Piaggio Aero
MPA,” said Kevin McSweeney, chief operating officer at Telephonics.
