IFF National Security
Low SWaP Micro IFF Solutions
uAvionix ZPX systems enable secure platform identification with Mode 1,2,3/A,C,S and 5 interoperability for UAS. ZPX transponders and receivers deliver equivalent performance to those deployed on traditional aircraft, but at a Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP) suitable for carriage by tactical UAS as small as Group 1or Group 2. All ZPX systems are crypto-appliqué compatible and installable on UAS as small as 6 kg. ZPX transponders are also compliant with civil airspace requirements as Mode S/1090ES ADS-B transponders, simplifying aircraft configurations.
