Military identification is available with Mode 4-like NSM, supported by an external cryptographic computer. Mode S is also provided in order to monitor civilian air traffic to support Situational Awareness.
The SIT434CI has been designed for airborne applications, surveillance on fixed wing maritime patrol aircraft or Airborne Rotary Wing (ARW), together with medium-range and long range naval and ground systems.
The interrogator is packaged in a rugged single LRU, intended for hard mounting with forced air cooling. It may alternatively be installed on a mounting tray with an integral fan to provide the forced air cooling drawn from ambient air. Integration with the platform is available via an Ethernet or MIL-STD-1553B data bus.
