    • Telephonics Demonstrates Passive IFF Capability

      Press Releases on July 23, 2013

    • Telephonics Corporation (Telephonics), a wholly owned subsidiary of Griffon Corporation (NYSE:GFF), announced today that they successfully demonstrated their Passive Detection and Reporting System (PDRS) at Bold Quest 2013. During the demonstration, the PDRS tracked targets at ranges up to 225 nautical miles. Targets included Mode 5 Level 2, Mode S, Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B), and Universal Access Transceiver at the Cherry Point Airfield.

      The PDRS is a receive-only system that does not interfere with current Identification Friend or Foe interrogators or Secondary Surveillance Radar systems. It reduces interrogation rates and minimizes radio transmissions, meeting the new FAA and Eurocontrol requirements. The system is designed to meet all military and civilian Air Traffic Management requirements for passive reception, reporting capability, and situational awareness.
