BAE Systems’ IFF for E-2D HAWKEYE

$26 Million Contract to Provide Spares

BAE Systems has received a $26 million (€22 million) US Navy contract for Identification Friend-or-Foe (IFF) spares for the E-2D Advanced HAWKEYE aircraft.

The company will provide beamforming networks, an integral part of antenna control for the AN/APX-122A IFF interrogator system installed on the carrier-capable aircraft.

These sets will provide situational awareness and early warning for US Navy sailors,” stated Donna Linke-Klein, Director of Tactical Systems at BAE Systems. “The Advanced HAWKEYE is essential for battle management command and control, and our interrogator systems enable operators to identify friendly forces and make informed decisions in a variety of threat environments.”

The AN/APX-122A IFF Interrogator system provides positive identification of friendly aircraft, giving aircraft operators the situational awareness they need to safely conduct their missions. These missions include C2, border security, SAR and missile defence. The AN/APX-122A is exclusive to the E-2D, reflecting the aircraft’s extraordinary requirements.

BAE Systems has been a leader in IFF systems technology for over 70 years, having delivered more than 14,000 transponders, 1,500 interrogators, and 6,000 combined interrogator/transponder systems for use across a multitude of platforms.
