    Aircraft Surveillance Equipment, Including Designators for Transponder, ADS-B, ADS-C, and Capabilities

INSERT N if no surveillance equipment for the route to be flown is carried, or the equipment is unserviceable,
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
A     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     Transponder - Mode S with neither aircraft identification nor pressure-altitude capability
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
