Fratricide Prevention Research - Germany

The German system (D-Band/1.090 Ghz transponder based) incorporates a laser interrogator which emits coded light pulses generated by solid state, low power eye-safe laser. Friendly platforms are fitted with IR detectors, which generate a D band RF encrypted response, picked up by the interrogating platform's D-band directional antennae. German scientists claim improved target discrimination and potential compatibility.
