What small/micro Identification, Friend or Foe (IFF) transponders could be used in small UAVs?

DSIAC worked with the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) and various transponder manufacturers to survey and catalog small/micro-sized IFF transponders that could be candidates for use in small (Group 1) unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The smallest of these transponders weigh only a few ounces and occupy only a few cubic inches of volume.  DSIAC generated a response document which catalogs over 20 transponders and includes datasheets for most transponders.
