Market Scenario


The identification, friend or foe (IFF) system is a form of detection system that enables the military to identify hostile aircraft and missiles. The system also empowers the military to prepare for necessary action long before the enemy inflicts any damage. The technology is an extension of the existing radar technology that determines whether the vehicle or aircraft is a friend or a foe. Advancements in radar technology are expected to encourage market growth during the forecast period.


The IFF system comprises two major components—the IFF interrogator and the IFF transponder. The two components mutually communicate with each other to certify that the aircraft or vehicle is either a friend or a foe. Increasing delivery of military aircraft is expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period. Moreover, IFF systems are being deployed on naval ships, which is expected to propel the market growth.


Existing IFF systems operate in coherence with local aviation regulations. For instance, according to the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations, military and civilian aircraft flying at an altitude of 10,000 feet must be equipped with IFF transponder systems that are capable of reporting the aircraft altitude automatically. Aviation regulations across regions are expected to encourage market growth.


Key Players


The key players in the global IFF system market are BAE Systems (UK), Thales Group (France), Leonardo SpA (Italy), Raytheon Company (US), Hensoldt (Germany), Indra Sistemas (Spain), Northrop Grumman Corporation (US), General Dynamics (US), Tellumat (South Africa), and Micro Systems (US).
