They found such a system at Behlman Electronics Inc. in Hauppauge, N.Y., the power division of Orbit International Corp. Behlman has received an order valued at more than $1.25 million for a power supply used on the Light Airborne Multi-Purpose System (LAMPS) MK1 SH-2G Seasprite, the U.S. Navy’s antisubmarine and antiship surveillance and targeting helicopter.
