Bench Test Set - Provides RF signal generation and parametric measurement of MK XIIA and TACAN equipment

A leading-edge RF signal generator designed for engineering and manufacturing applications, as well as for use in return-to-service work
The IFF-45TS Transponder / Interrogator / TACAN Bench Test Set is a versatile RF signal simulator used to test AIMS Mark XIIA transponders, interrogators and TACAN systems. It can operate under remote control from a computer or ATE system, providing support for ADS-B Out testing and monitoring ADS-B, TIS-B and Acquisition squitters. The IFF-45TS emulates either a ground or airborne transponder in six different modes.
