DF-430 Direction Finder

Please view part numbers below under the "Typical System" tab.

Overview

Please refer to the DF-500 section for information on our next-generation replacement for the Rockwell Collins DF-430. The DF-430 is no longer in production.

When the mission is critical, you need a direction finder that’s up to the challenge. The DF-430 from Rockwell Collins is a multi-mission direction finder, covering the 30-410 MHz band, that provides tactical direction finding for government and military Search And Rescue (SAR) and anti-submarine warfare. You get a minimal-risk solution with field-proven, customized equipment.

The DF-430 has stand-alone or integrated line replaceable units for universal interface ability, with flush mounted antenna that doesn't affect the aircraft flight envelope. It is DF-301E footprint-compatible for upgrade/retrofit installation. And, the DF-430 has proven performance on various platforms, including as a stand-alone system or integrated with existing aircraft and on shipborne or land-based SAR platforms.

We will continue to provide complete field support for DF-430 units and remain ready to assist customers in the acquisition of previously owned DF-430 units and/or refurbishment of existing customer owned units.
