On the 9th May the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG ) announced that Telephonics Corporation has won an IDIQ (indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity) contract for multi-mode radar systems. The contract has been awarded by the U.S. Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD), one of two product centres within the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR), reported Shephard Media.

The contract is worth approximately $31.8 million and is part of the efforts of the coast guard in relation to further enhancement of the mission capability of the C-27J Spartan medium range surveillance aircraft through equipping it with the appropriate components.

For that purpose, Telephonics will deliver up to 19 (nineteen) radar systems, which will improve the C-27J capability of detection. The scope of the contract also covers logistics support, as well as engineering technical services.

The deadline of the contract is agreed to be in May 2023.

Telephonics is a global advanced-technology leading company in highly sophisticated surveillance, communications, analysis, and integration solutions with headquarters in the USA.

The Alenia C-27J Spartan is a military transport aircraft manufactured by the Aircraft Division of the Italian high-tech company Leonardo (formerly Alenia Aermacchi, until 2016).

In 2007, the C-27J was selected for the U.S. military as the Joint Cargo Aircraft and in 2012, the United States Air Force decided to retire the C-27J, because of budget cuts. The C-27Js were later reassigned to the U.S. Coast Guard.
