11 Mode S/5 System: Function: Fleet Introduction: Issues
Transponder mode updates Function: Mode S: “selective” identification for air traffic management Mode 5: provides high-confidence, accurate, and continuous friendly ID to prevent fratricide and improve SA discriminate between closely-spaced targets in real time avoid spoofing and exploitation Fleet Introduction: Mode S: Requires APX-118 and Sysconfig 58 Mode 5: Requires card update and ACPM (24 bit address) SysConfig 58 (JUN08, Supports CSG09) Issues Mode S on schedule Mode 5 ahead of schedule 1. ACPM: AirCraft Personality Module

12 Mode 5 System Performance
Enhanced Security Discriminate Between Closely-Spaced Platforms Mode 4 Mode 5 NSA Action Memo Includes data from Phasing out of KI-Family all current Mark XII of equipment Modes within protected (dtd 29 Jul 94) reply (Modes 1,2,3,C) 40-year old algorithm New NSA - developed algorithm 24-Hour COMSEC Validity X-Sec COMSEC Validity Interval Interval Reply Unprotected Interrogation and Reply Encryption Mode 4 Replies have same delay Results in Multi-Target Garble Mode 5 Incorporates Random Reply Delay Eliminates Leader Squawk Procedures Eliminates IFF Related Track Swap Mode 5 Improves ID Coverage Compatible with Civil ATC Mode 5 designed to interfere less than Mode 4 Lower interrogation rate Message design does not induce civil transponder “squitter” Demonstrates 85% less interference to civil ATC transponders Close coordination with FAA has resulted in positive response Supports goal of unrestricted use for training and operational missions Mode Mode 5 7 dB Processing Gain Extends Effective Coverage Reduces Target Dropout Reduces ID Track Swaps Confirmed by Mode 5 M&S and Flight Demo This chart summarizes the superior system performance of Mode 5. Upper Left: Security is dramatically improved, as you can see here. Mode 5 relieves concerns NSA has relative to Mode 4 and our warfighters. Where as with Mode 4, we have a 24-hour code validity interval, the Mode 5 interval is a matter of seconds making it virtually impossible to defeat cryptographic security through spoofing and/or exploitation. Additionally, during the transition from Mode 4 to Mode 5, all current Mark XII data is included in Mode 5 and protected. Upper Right: One of the most important increases in performance is Mode 5’s capacity to discriminate between closely spaced targets. Mode 4 replies in the interrogation beam all have the same delay and therefore, arrive at the interrogator ‘overlapped’, ‘garbled’ or lost. Mode 5 replies are randomly spaced via a Random Reply Delay routine. Formation flights and/or multi-target ‘fur ball’ operations are now easily sorted out in a single antenna sweep Lower Left: Through process gain, Mode 5 significantly increases battlespace volumetric coverage, and the multipath-induced dropped-target fade zones are pushed out from the interrogating platform thus increasing the acquisition range to essentially radar horizon. Two significant improvements: track continuity and operator workload. Lower Right: Finally, Mode 5 is designed for minimum interference with Civil ATC radars. For many years, the FAA has had strict rules on the radiation of Mode 4, because its use under certain conditions causes civil transponders to squitter or automatically generate unwanted replies that adversely impact controllers’ aircraft track integrity. The Mode 5 message design and lower interrogation rate results in an 85% improvement over the current system.

13 Lethal Interrogation “Last chance” friend ID prior to engagement
Provides EMCON like condition with means to be identified Transponders in STANDBY or ON will reply Highest priority interrogation and fully encrypted SURVEILLANCE NON-LETHAL INTERROGATION ENGAGEMENT NO REPLY Mode 5 Lethal is probably one of the greatest benefits of Mode 5. Mode 5 Lethal allows a platform to be in an EMCON like condition with it’s transponder turned to standby and still be identified in an engagement scenario. Any interrogations conducted for surveillance purposes will be ignored by the target platform. If a platform is going to engage a target, a Mode 5 Lethal interrogation will be conducted prior weapon light-off. It is important that the operator community understand that this capability can not be abused. Where applicable, the capability will be a function of the combat weapon system, such as AEGIS Command and Decision Computer. In cases where a weapon system is non-existent, extreme discretion must be adhered to when using Lethal. Abuse will lead to pilots turning there transponders off thus defeating NATO’s intent for this capability. LETHAL INTERROGATION REPLY
