OWEGO, N.Y., 05-FEB-04 -- Team US101 competing to provide the president of the United States with a new Marine One helicopter fleet has selected Palomar Products of Rancho Santa Margarita, CA to supply the secure communications capability for the US101 medium-lift executive aircraft.
A leader in secure communications products for the Department of Defense, Palomar will supply the US101 aircraft with a state-of-the-art secure intercommunications system that meets military crosstalk isolation standards for preventing other sources from eavesdropping on voice transmissions. The company currently provides secure voice communications for the existing Marine One helicopters.
Palomar is in a class of its own, and is a welcome addition to our team, said Stephen D. Ramsey, Lockheed Martin's US101 vice president and general manager. The exceptional performance record of Palomar's secure intercommunications systems across multiple Marine, Navy and Air Force platforms, coupled with the US101 platform's proven operational success provides the Marine One squadron optimal reliability and low risk in a helicopter system to serve the office of the president.
Palomar is proud to be a part of the US101 team, and we look forward to continuing our service to the president, said Val Policky, Palomar Products' president. Our experience as a U.S. military supplier together with our high quality workforce has long been a source of pride for Orange County. It's an honor to be part of the national team that will produce the next presidential executive transport helicopter.
