AN-453/N is a modern TACAN 3kW beacon which is housed in a single 19” cabinet in its full dual redundant configuration, with single fail-soft solid-state power amplifier.
The design of AN-453/N, derived by a thirty years expertise in the TACAN field, is based on state-of-the art techniques both in microwave as well as in digital/microprocessor-based circuitry.
A special effort has been devoted to minimize the total cost of ownership by the introduction of remote monitoring maintenance system.
AN-453/N meets the specifications of STANAG 5034, Ed. 3 and of MIL-STD-291B; in addition it is fully compatible with the civil specifications of ICAO Annex 10 and EUROCAE Ed 57, which concern only range measurement.
