OVERVIEW of SECONDARY SURVEILLANCE RADAR (SSR) & IDENTIFICATION FRIEND/FOE (IFF) SYSTEMS — PART I
June 22 @ 18:00 - 19:00FREE
The lecture is composed of two one-hour parts.
In Part I a general overview of SSR/IFF is presented which includes a review of terms and definitions. From there, a historical timeline of SSR/IFF is summarized beginning with early implementations and ending with modern day systems. Then system architectures are reviewed starting with block diagrams and the challenges of scanning airspace. System-level features also include sidelobe suppression, antenna dwell time, azimuth determination and RF link budgets. In addition, the trade-offs between 2-channel and 3-channel systems are reviewed.
