Reading time ( words)

Raytheon Company has delivered the 200th APG-63(V)3 active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar for the F-15 platform, which is used by the U.S. Air Force, Air National Guard and multiple coalition partners around the world.

"The APG-63(V)3 is in demand worldwide, and our AESA radar production line in Forest, Mississippi, is thriving," said Roy Azevedo, vice president, Tactical Airborne Systems. "Backed by Raytheon's commitment to the warfighter, our proven AESA radars are the right choice to take the F-15 confidently into the future."

This all-weather, multimode AESA radar provides superior situational awareness and interoperability to F-15 aircrew. Along with its increased capability, the radar is three times more reliable than older mechanically scanned array radars, resulting in sustainment savings and increased availability.

"The Raytheon AESA radar family may be tailored to fit any platform's size, space and weight requirements, and all our systems share common technology for incomparable detection, targeting, tracking and self-protection," Azevedo said. "Raytheon leads the world in AESA radars delivered and successful combat mission hours logged. This latest APG-63(V)3 milestone is yet more testimony to that leadership"

With fire control radars designed for F-15, F-16, F/A-18 and B-2 aircraft, Raytheon has delivered more than 800 AESA radars since introducing the technology in 2000. The Boeing Company is the prime contractor for the F-15 program.
