Northrop Grumman Corporation AN/APG-68(V)9 Multimode Fire Control Radar

Description
AN/APG-68(V)9 Delivers Enhanced Performance and Lower Support Costs The APG-68(V)9 enables engagement of air-to-air and air-to-surface threats with greater accuracy and at greater ranges than legacy F-16 fire control radars. The radar provides autonomous, all-environment, precision air-to-surface targeting with a high-resolution synthetic aperture radar ground mapping mode. AN/APG-68(V)9 Benefits Faster, farther aerial target target acquisition, with 33% greater air-to-air range than legacy radars Synthetic aperture radar ground mapping mode Reduced weight, power, and cooling 25%-45% lower support costs Higher reliability with greater than 120% MTBF improvement over legacy radar Compatible with LITENING and other EO pods Compatible with EW systems Compatible with AMRAAM, AIM-9X, and other missiles and GPS weapons such as JDAM, JSOW and WCMD Retrofit kit can be installed in approximately 2 days on the flight line Robust logistics base, with hundreds of systems fielded Compatible with all F-16 avionics suites. Northrop Grumman has been developing, integrating and producing F-16 fire control radars for 36 years. This includes three variants of the APG-66; eight variants of the APG-68; the APG-80 Airborne Electronically Scanned Array (AESA), developed specifically for the F-16 Block 60; and the Scalable Agile Beam Radar (SABR) AESA. The company's long heritage in fire control radars also includes fire control radars for the B-1, F-22 and the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.
