Ultra has released a new line of flight-ready products, representing the next evolution of mission-critical, high-reliability RF systems.
The Hawk IFF micro Identification Friend or Foe system, the Ultra 4504 Radar Altimeter (RALT 4504) and a new line of Digital Flight Termination Receivers (DFTRs) all provide upgraded and advanced technological capabilities for a wide variety of airborne platforms and munitions systems.
“Ultra’s long 30-plus year legacy and strong pedigree of bringing trusted, mission-critical RF solutions to market is our motivation for continued innovation,” said Dan Pikora, president of Ultra’s Specialist RF business unit. “These new solutions offer miniaturization capabilities that will help systems integrators upgrade the performance of their platforms while saving space and power for other critical components.
The new Hawk IFFTM is a radar-based identification system designed for command and control (C2). Hawk IFF delivers all the performance of traditional IFF transponders in a fraction of the space. Small enough to fit in a hand and weighing less than eight ounces, it can fly on Class II UAS and up, as well as any fixed or rotary wing aircraft. Like any full-size IFF, it uses a transponder that listens for an interrogation signal, then sends a response that identifies the broadcaster.
The RALT 4504 is a low-cost, all-weather system that meets the high-performance requirements of both manned and unmanned systems. The new line of Digital Flight Termination Receivers, including the HFTR60-3 and HFTR60-4 models, are next-generation programmable, digital FTRs that use advanced Digital Signal Processing (DSP) techniques for its mission.
The Precision Strike Sensor Core (PSSC) enables first-strike success. Ultra has developed an advanced programmable transceiver to facilitate radar frequency guidance and control as well as in-flight data link communications for conventional munitions, including projectiles and powered rockets.
