Thales and LIG Nex1 to provide FoF interrogators to ROK
Thales and LIG Nex1 have been selected by South Korea’s Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA) to provide TSA 1412 IFF (identification Friend or Foe) interrogators to the Republic of Korea Armed Forces.
The TSA 1412 IFF is a short-range/very short-range interrogator that will be integrated with man-portable missile systems and air defence vehicles including South Korea’s K-SAM, Biho-hybrid, TPS-830K and KP-SAM defence systems.
The interrogator has Mode 5 certification which is to become a mandatory standard for IFF systems in use during NATO-led coalition missions from 2020 onwards in order to ensure maximum interoperability.
LIG Nex1 has been selected as Thales’ local partner which will be responsible for transferring production to reliable local SMEs.
According to Thales, the TSA 1412 IFF is the most lightweight interrogator weighing less than 2kg. The system has been sold to Japan and the United States along with a number of European states including Sweden and the United Kingdom.
Thales has not disclosed the value of the contract.
