AN/UPX-36(V)() Central IFF for Ship Defense System
The Central IFF for Ship Defense (CIFF-SD) System AN/UPX-36(V) () is a centralized, controller processor-based, AIMS MK XII IFF system that associates different sources of target information such as IFF and SSDS track files. The CIFF-SD System accepts composite video returns from shipboard IFF sensors; processes and centroids the individual sensor signals; correlates and combines IFF sensor inputs into one IFF track picture; associates IFF contacts with local and composite tracks; and provides track data to, and receives composite track updates from, the Multi-Function Computer Plant (MFCP). CIFF-SD controls the interrogations of each IFF system on a track-selective basis as well as continually in designated sectors. CIFF-SD LAN Access Unit (LAU) is capable of operating in the simulation and playback modes to support training. CIFF-SD can operate in the diagnostic mode when the interface with the MFCP cannot be established or is disabled. CIFF-SD also provides the means to interface to a keyboard/display terminal for the purpose of entering parametric data for system set-up and trouble-shooting.
