I-Band Transponder (IBT)

Communication, Navigation & Identification

The RF2M Microwave Ltd I-Band Transponder System makes use of any I-Band surveillance radar, both for interrogation and for reception of the coded transponder replies. By transmitting any one of 16 different coded reply sequences, friendly aircraft can individually identify themselves to the controlling radar. Upon reception, the transponder reply is filtered from the radar echo and is channelled to the RRB Receiver.

With the addition of Video Code Suppression Units, the code information may be removed from a video feed while retaining the essential target enhancement. This switchable feature can reduce display clutter in high target environments.

The I-Band Transponder includes a built in test facility to prove both receive and transmit functions for operator confidence.

Features

Overview
  • The RF2M Microwave Ltd I-Band Transponder System provides a highly effective means of locating, identifying and providing navigational assistance for a variety of aircraft outside normal radar coverage and range.
  • The system is effectively employed to provide accurate surveillance, tracking and approach control information, not only at low altitudes and beyond the normal radar horizon, but also at close range, in bad weather and in severe clutter environments.
  • While being more accurate, physically robust and more cost effective then competitive secondary radar systems, the RF2M Microwave Ltd system is also less complex and easier both to install and to support operationally.
Highlights
  • Safety of Life
  • Close range, precision approach / control
  • Long range navigation and control
  • Search and rescue
  • Individual identification of aircraft
  • Enhanced radar track / position reporting
  • Oil rig identification / navigation
  • Coastal navigation and surveillance
  • Air-to-Air identification / surveillance
  • Marine navigation / beacon systems
  • Madeeuicon

RRB Receiver

Communication, Navigation & Identification

The RF2M Microwave Ltd RRB Receiver interfaces with shipborne I Band surveillance / navigation radars. The RRB Receiver (which is specifically tuned to the transmit frequency of the associated RF2M Microwave Ltd I Band Transponder) takes a signal from the prime radar antenna feed waveguide.

The processed output from the RRB Receiver is available for display on bridge or command centre radar display system(s). Additional RRB Receiver outputs may be used for further signal processing or track extraction etc. As standard, the output from the RRB Receiver shows the code being transmitted by the Transponder. 16 different codes are selectable in the aircraft cockpit for identification or other purposes.
