    • Telephonics Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Griffon Corporation (NYSE:GFF), announced today that its Electronic Systems Division (ESD) successfully completed Site Acceptance Testing (SAT) of the AeroTrac® automation system at Macau International Airport. Macau airport is an integral component of the economic infrastructure in southern China. With over 5 million passengers and 45,000 flights per year, the airport plays a pivotal role in the tourism and MICE (Meeting, Incentive Travel, Conference, Exhibitions) industry of the region. The Telephonics AeroTrac system, with its advanced Flight Plan Data Processing, allows for automatic, transparent, and seamless planning and coordination with neighboring Air Traffic Control centers that already use the AeroTrac system. The Sensor Data Fusion Processor engine provides controllers with the most accurate and timely aircraft information combining both ADS-B and radar data.

      “The successful completion of SAT is a major milestone for the Pearl River Delta”, said Mr. Donald Pastor, Electronic Systems Division President. “Macau is an important airport in a complex and growing airspace. AeroTrac provides the necessary tools to safely expand the capacity of air traffic in the Pearl River Delta.”

      Telephonics’ air traffic control and air traffic management systems are widely used in Asia and in Eastern Europe. With numerous installations of its robust AeroTrac Air Traffic Control systems in other locations throughout China, Korea, and Croatia, Telephonics is emerging as a key supplier of Air Traffic Management systems throughout Asia and Europe, in addition to its presence in other areas around the world.
