The Brazilian Air Force fleet of in-service A1M fighter jets and E-99 AEW surveillance aircraft will be retrofitted with new Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) transponder upgrades from Thales. 
Embraer selected Thales to supply its TSC 2030 and TSC 2050 transponders to a total of 48 aircraft operated by the Brazilian Air Force. 
IFF transponders provide an identification capability compliant with secure identification modes used by NATO forces, including Modes 4 and 5.
