BAE Systems will provide identification friend or foe (IFF) digital transponders, upgrade kits and spares to the U.S. Navy and Army under a $20 million contract. The IFF systems increase situational awareness and help to positively establish the identity of friendly forces, reducing the risk of fratricide, or "friendly fire."
