Press release date: February 10, 2014

Model 00389 Behlman power supply supports anti-submarine and anti-ship surveillance and targeting systems.

Hauppauge, New York– Behlman Electronics Inc., known for its leadership in providing power products for military shipboard, airborne and mobile programs, as well as industrial and commercial applications, has received an additional order for a quantity of its Model 00389 COTS power supplies. These power supplies have been used by the U.S. Navy since 1999, to support anti-submarine and anti-ship surveillance and targeting systems.

The Behlman 00389 power supply is a rugged, highly-reliable unit designed and built for military and high-end industrial applications. It is designed to meet the requirements of MIL-STD-704A and RTCA-DO160, as well as MIL-Standards 901; 810C; 167; and 461C/D. These power supplies have repeatedly proven their reliability and performance in airborne naval systems, while similar Behlman COTS power supplies have proven themselves on shipboard and mobile applications. Behlman president, Ron Storm, said, “The fact that our Model 00389 power supply has supported the Navy’s program for 15 years, during which time we have received multiple follow-on orders, is clear evidence of its superb performance and high reliability. We are especially proud to be able to supply one of our Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) power supplies to meet the Navy’s specific military requirements. This has saved tax payers many millions of dollars that would otherwise have been required for custom designing, engineering and manufacturing.”
