COURSE # ROO-450

INTRODUCTION TO SECONDARY SURVEILLANCE RADAR (SSR) AND IDENTIFICATION FRIEND OR FOE (IFF) TECHNOLOGY AND EQUIPMENT


Systematic introduction and overview of IFF concepts, systems and technology.


The deployment of modern, high precision weapon systems and their effectiveness depend to a large degree on a timely and accurate identification of all targets, both friendly and hostile. This course introduces the basic concepts and operations of the Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) systems currently deployed in major US and NATO combatants. The directly related commercial aircraft identification equipment is the Air Traffic Control Radar Beacon System (ATCRBS) or the Secondary Surveillance Radar (SSR). These two systems share the same operating philosophy, waveforms, and frequencies. Both systems are covered throughout the course, as well as the Mode S which is an additional IFF waveform and procedure operating at the same frequencies, and intended for use by both the military and Air Traffic Control communities.

Applications and benefits:

You will benefit by enhancing your understanding of the :

Who should attend:

Engineers, managers, operations specialists, and others working with military combat sensors systems, where target identification is required. Management, technical and operations staff involved in military or commercial traffic control. This course does not have prerequisites; however, a degree in engineering, science or the equivalent experience would be helpful.

Course Outline:


Text: Secondary Surveillance Radar by Michael C. Stevens.
