IFF-45TS MK XIIA/TACAN Bench Test Set

A leading edge RF signal generator designed for engineering, manufacturing and return-to-service applications

Provides RF signal generation and parametric measurement of MK XIIA and TACAN equipment

IFF-45TS

The IFF-45TS Transponder / Interrogator / TACAN Bench Test Set is an RF signal simulator that provides support for AIMS Mark XIIA transponders and interrogators. It operates under remote control from a computer or ATE system and provides versatile signal generation and measurement capability of Mark XIIA system signals in bench and over-the-air applications.

Replies and interrogations can be individually configured to support testing requirements. ADS-B Out testing monitors ADS-B, TIS-B, ADS-R and Acquisition squitters. The IFF-45TS emulates either a TACAN ground transponder or a TACAN airborne interrogator, providing six TACAN test modes
