FARMINGDALE, N.Y., Dec. 16 (UPI) -- Telephonics Corp.'s Radar Systems and Communication and Electronic Systems Divisions have a new facility in Alabama.

Telephonics, a subsidiary of Griffon Corp., said engineers at the Huntsville, Ala., facility will conduct analysis of air and missile defense threat systems and engineering, high-fidelity modeling and simulation, and missile, radar and combat systems.

High-technology engineering for integrated information, communication and sensor system solutions for military applications and platforms will also be performed.

"This facility will enable Telephonics and SEG to provide hardware, technical support, maintenance and high-end systems engineering services to our customers," said Joseph Battaglia, president and chief executive officer of Telephonics, which has headquarters in New York state.
