Raytheon unveils compact AESA radar
Raytheon has introduced its newest affordable, lightweight and compact AESA radar
According to the manufacturer, it provides the capability of a heavyweight AESA fire control radar at half the cost.
The new radar weighs just over 100lb, making it one-third of the weight of most modern AESA radars.
It achieves high performance at a reduced weight and cost through utilising Gallium Nitride technology, a digital receiver/exciter and processors called CHIRP and a unique air-cooled design.
Raytheon’s AESA radar features an open architecture design to allow for rapid upgrades while keeping operational and maintenance costs low.
Their AESA radars have combat-proven reliability with more than one million flight hours total since the first operational AESA radar developed for the F-15C Eagle in 2000.
Raytheon’s AESA radars are trusted by militaries across the world, with the USAF ordering the AN/APG-82(V) AESA radar for the F-15EX in June of this year and the USMC ordering more AN/APG-79(V)4 radars earlier in May.
