Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) Airborne Radar System
RI&S’s APG-79(v)4 is a one-for-one retrofit for legacy F/A-18C/D and represents a significant advancement in radar technology and reliability, from the front-end array to the back-end processor and operational software.
With this combat-proven, all-weather system, crews can fire several missiles at once and guide them to different targets that are widely spaced in azimuth, elevation or range.
85% commonality with APG-79
Simultaneous tracking and fire control of multiple air-to-air targets and surface moving targets, along with high-definition, real-time surface topology mapping
X-Band for higher resolution imaging
