3/13/2013 - Telephonics Corporation (Telephonics), a wholly owned subsidiary of Griffon Corporation (NYSE:GFF), announced today that its Mobile Surveillance Capability (MSC) was named the Platinum Winner in the Best Integrated Perimeter Protection System category at the Annual Border Security Awards Competition by Government Security News.
The MSC truck is currently on display at the Border Security Expo in Phoenix, AZ. It was assessed for this award based on the successful integration and demonstration of multiple sensors using intuitive, user-friendly mission control and monitoring software. The integrated sensor suite includes a long-range ground moving target indicator radar, day and night cameras, laser range-finder, and other operational and self-protection sensors.
