Telephonics has won a $22.3 million modification contract as part of a U.S. Navy deal with Lockheed Martin to upgrade radar systems of helicopters designed to hunt hostile submarines.

Telephonics will serve as a subcontractor in producing the systems that let MH-60R helicopters detect periscopes of submarines that have surfaced.

The Navy is purchasing 11 new upgrade kits, bringing the total to 98 out of 110 needed to upgrade all MH-60R aircraft, Jim Short, Lockheed Martin senior program manager for the MH-60R production programs, said Monday.
