OR

INSERT one or more of the following descriptors, to a maximum of 20 characters, to describe the serviceable surveillance equip-

ment and/or capabilities on board:

SSR Modes A and C

Transponder - Mode A (4 digits – 4096 codes)

C

Transponder - Mode A (4 digits – 4096 codes) and Mode C

SSR Mode S
E

Transponder - Mode S, including aircraft identification, pressure-altitude and extended squitter (ADS-B) capability

H

Transponder - Mode S, including aircraft identification, pressure-altitude and enhanced surveillance capability

I

Transponder - Mode S, including aircraft identification, but no pressure-altitude capability

L

Transponder - Mode S, including aircraft identification, pressure-altitude, extended squitter (ADS B) and enhanced surveil-

lance capability

P

Transponder - Mode S, including pressure-altitude, but no aircraft identification capability

S

Transponder - Mode S, including both pressure-altitude and aircraft identification capability

X

NOTE−

Enhanced surveillance capability is the ability of the aircraft to down-link aircraft derived data via a Mode S transponder.
Followed by one or more of the following codes if the aircraft has ADS-B capability:
B1 ADS-B with dedicated 1090 MHz ADS-B “out” capability
B2 ADS-B with dedicated 1090 MHz ADS-B “out” and “in” capability
U1 ADS-B “out” capability using UAT
U2 ADS-B “out” and “in” capability using UAT
V1 ADS-B “out” capability using VDL Mode 4
V2 ADS-B “out” and “in” capability using VDL Mode 4
NOTE−

File no more than one code for each type of capability; for example, file B1 or B2,but not both.
Followed by one or more of the following codes if the aircraft has ADS-C capability:
D1 ADS-C with FANS 1/A capabilities
G1 ADS-C with ATN capabilities
