FARMINGDALE, N.Y., Feb. 8 (UPI) -- The U.S. Navy's Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense is to receive support services from the Telephonics Corp. of New York.

The integrated weapon system and missile development, test and evaluation support services include data generation through the use of analytical system and threat engineering tools, computer modeling and simulation and hardware enhancements.

The contract to Telephonics' Systems Engineering Group from the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Corona Division will assess and analyze the performance of existing and future ABMD systems "relative to current and projected threat systems and support the development of robust and capable future system designs," Telephonics said.

It has a value of $11.5 million for the base year of performance. If two one-year options are exercised, the cumulative value would be $35.5 million.

"We are extremely pleased that NSWC has once again chosen us to provide this specialized and critical engineering support for the ABMD program," said Joseph J. Battaglia, president and chief executive officer of Telephonics Corp.

"This continues SEG's long contractual relationship with NSWC Corona which began in 1999, and is based on our unique capabilities in support of missile and weapon system development."
