Telephonics to support Saudi AWACS programme

8th May 2019 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Telephonics has received a $12.6 million contract from the US Air Force to support the Royal Saudi Air Force’s E-3 Sentry Airborne Warning and Control System programme, the company announced on 6 May.

The contract, awarded under the US government foreign military sales programme, will see the company supply its AN/UPX-40 identification friend or foe system (IFF) for the Saudi aircraft.

The next generation AN/UPX-40 will include Mode 5 capabilities allowing for expanded data handling transmissions without increasing interference. The system can be configured for shipboard, airborne or ground-based applications allowing for mission systems to identify aircraft or ships as friendly or unknown.

According to the company, the AN/UPX-40 IFF system is all-mode certified.
