TMD, a UK SME, wins $10 million contract in USA Tuesday 1 July 2008 PDF Print TMD Technologies Ltd, a UK company based in Hayes, Middlesex, has been awarded a purchase order by Telephonics Corporation of Long Island, New York, USA, in support of the Spares Supplement to Telephonics’ Multi-Year Full Scale Production contract for a multi mission helicopter. This purchase order is in addition to previously exercised options to TMD that provide for the delivery of Travelling Wave Tube Assemblies (TWTA) for the radar. The previous contract award to Telephonics of the Multi-Year Full Scale Production contract included the delivery of 139 radars, for which TMD Technologies will supply a share of TWTAs for the radar transmitter. TMD's share of the total award will be US$10 million over the multi year full-scale production. The radar was designed to meet the demanding mission needs of the helicopter community in the blue water and littoral sea environment in all weather conditions, day and night, providing maritime domain surveillance superiority. Important advanced features of this radar include small target detection, inverse synthetic aperture radar (ISAR), and a unique, fully integrated identification friend or foe (IFF) interrogator capability. "We have a long relationship in supplying Telephonics with state of the art, reliable products," said Graham H Brown, Sales Director of TMD Technologies, "and we are proud to be part of the successful Telephonics team." -ends- Photo caption TMD is a regular supplier of radar equipment for multi-mission helicopters.
