The U-2 has an EFA for the pilot's checklists built in to the avionics processor.  Looks like the instruction manual for the Oregon Trail video game.  Probably worse actually.  It's a human factors dumpster fire. To get to the next page you press the "up" rocker button and not the "down" rocker button...why?  Because engineers built it and in their minds, you go up in page number so that should be the up button.  I guess no one asked a pilot.  

 

Ostensibly those chodes have used a computer...maybe they should have hit the page down button. Go crazy, see what happens. FFS. 

 

Anyways, classic SPO requirements work with the ADS-B out stovepipe.

Someone explain this ADS-B out stuff to me.

 

I have a new IFF with Mode 5 in the jet. It requires me to be tracking satellites before I turn it on. Does this perform the same function?

Not likely unless it has Mode 5 Level 2B.

 

In a nutshell Mode 5 is the replacement for Mode 4 since NSA depreciated it and no longer will provide codes for it soon.

 

But it is possible someone actually ordered something with M5L2-B.
