IFF Mark III airborne Transpondor similar to the ABK or SCR-595 in that it sweeps the Navy A band frequencies (Army's I band) providing a coded reply for reception by a responsor upon being challenged on a frequency in the band. In addition to this function, the SCR-695 is provided with a second transpondor which operates on a fixed frequency that may be adjusted over a range designated as the G band. This G band transpondor provides a frequency channel for interceptors operating with ground and shipboard GCI units. USES: The A Band transpondor serves to identify the aircraft as friendly and its G band transpondor further identifies the aircraft as a fighter directly on the GCI PPI indicator. SCR-695 (ABF) responds to:
