FARMINGDALE, N.Y., 17 Jan. 2008.Telephonics Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Griffon Corp., delivers technology for Mobile Surveillance Systems (MSS) for U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

"It takes the proper mix of all three of these elements: technology, tactical infrastructure, and personnel to secure our nation's borders," states company chairman, Harvey Blau. "We have supported CBP during the 18-month development phase of the MSS platform and are very proud to have been selected for this important effort."
