Behlman Announces that Its Model 94020 Power Supplies Have Now Been Extending the Useful Life of U.S. Navy UYQ-21(V) Display System Consoles for More Than Seven Years

Press release date: April 7, 2014

Recent additional orders will help prevent system obsolescence well into the future.

Hauppauge, New York, – Behlman Electronics, Inc., known for its leadership in providing power products for military, industrial, and commercial applications, has received follow-on orders for its Model 94020 Power Supplies designed to help the U.S. Navy keep its UYQ-21(V) display systems operational. These are the latest in a series of repeat orders that began after the program started in 2007.

Since 1982, the UYQ-21(V) U.S. Naval Tactical Display System (NTDS) console has been the standard for many of the U.S. Navy’s surface vessels.

In 2006, Behlman was called upon to help solve the problems caused by the increasing failure of the aging power supplies in the UYQ-21(V) display system that were no longer supported by the original manufacturer. For this task, Behlman adapted its Model 94020 High-voltage COTS Power Supply to match the size, shape, and performance requirements of the Navy’s UYQ-21(V) display system. Testing was completed successfully, and delivery began in 2007.

This power supply has now proven itself in extensive real-world operation for seven years, and continues to be the power supply upgrade of choice for UYQ-21 display systems.

The Behlman 94020 Power Supply operates from a +28 VDC input, and supplies four high-voltage outputs at voltages up to 25,000 VDC, to power the color CRT display. Though it is a COTS product, and therefore able to save the U.S. Navy substantial design and engineering development costs, the Behlman 94020 is a rugged design, well-suited to withstand the rigors of shipboard combat operations.

“Extending the operational life of the Navy’s UYQ-21 (V) display system has been a flagship program for us,” said Behlman President, Ronald Storm. “It is among the milestones that prove military quality can be achieved using our broad line of cost-saving Commercial-Off-The-Shelf power products.”

Behlman Electronics, Inc. is a subsidiary of Orbit International Corp., and the basis of the Orbit Power Group. Behlman manufactures and sells high quality standard, modified standard, custom and COTS power solutions, including AC power supplies, frequency converters, inverters, DC-DC, AC-DC, DC-AC, uninterruptible power supplies, and VPX/VME power supplies.

Orbit International Corp., based in Hauppauge, New York, is involved in the manufacture of customized electronic components and subsystems for military and nonmilitary government applications. The Orbit Electronics Group includes Orbit Instrument, Tulip Development Laboratory, and Integrated Combat Systems.
