Secondary surveillance radar (SSR) and Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) radar are essential tools for safe and secure aviation. While the radar systems have evolved, many of the test challenges have remained constant. Depending upon whether one is designing, characterizing, installing, maintaining, or troubleshooting an SSR system, one may have different requirements for testing the radio frequency (RF) transmission. As a result, different instrumentation is often used based on which task is being completed or the same equipment is used throughout requiring users to accept compromises. The former leads to higher equipment costs, the latter inefficiency and lower productivity. This workshop will introduce a new approach to these test challenges where the same test equipment can be used throughout, without the compromises.
