AN/SLQ-20B Seesaw Electronic Warfare System

In addition to distinguishing friend from foe for weapons employment, the Navy requires secure, jam resistant Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) systems for battle group air defense management and air traffic control. Identification is multifaceted and includes information received from several sensors (both cooperative and non- cooperative systems). The AN/SLQ-20B "Seesaw" Improved Identification Developments project develops Non- Cooperative Target Recognition (NCTR) and integration techniques. In FY1997 the project performed operational testing, passed Milestone III and transitioned AN/ SLQ- 20 Upgrade to production.
