Raytheon to Update Aircraft RF ID System; Glenn Bassett Comments

Raytheon logo_EbizRaytheon will update its radio frequency-based identification system for military aircraft under a modified contract with the U.S. Army.

The Army placed the order for the Identification Friend or Foe interrogator in 2012 with the goal of minimizing disruptions to the national airspace system and civilian air traffic, Raytheon said Friday.

Glenn Bassett, Raytheon director of advanced communication and countermeasures, said the company also aims to help the Army reduce RF emissions.

The company will install Mode S into the interrogator, which works to assively detect and identify aircraft and other targets.

Raytheon also aims to link the IFF to the Army’s Air Traffic, Navigation, Integration and Coordination System for other military surveillance and monitoring activities.
