Sener Aerospace and Defense Partners with Airbus Helicopters to Install IFF mode 5/S transponders in the Spanish Military Helicopters

Sener Aerospace and Defense has signed the first contract with Airbus Helicopters Spain to install IFF mode 5/S transponders in the helicopter fleets of the Spanish armed forces. This is a navigation and communication identification system sending and receiving radiofrequency signals that are of special importance to flight safety.

Based on the agreement reached, Airbus Helicopters España will act as the prime contractor, leading the contract activities for the Spanish Air Force and Army; while Sener will act as a nominated subcontractor to carry out activities (engineering, prototype testing, airworthiness certification, and supply of technical documentation, equipment, and kits) both for the prototype and for the SH-60B series of aircraft, and potentially for the Spanish Navy’s AB-212 helicopters.

Both companies acknowledge the strategic nature of this new alliance and hope this first collaboration will be a success and set the benchmark for subsequent activities, in terms of the modernization and development of subsystems of common interest, both nationally and abroad.
