El SEGUNDO, CALIFORNIA (BNS): Raytheon has received a contract from Boeing to produce and deliver the APG-79 active electronically scanned array (AESA) radars for the US Navy's F/A-18 Super Hornet fighters.

Under the contract from Boeing for the second procurement in the four-year Multi-Year III programme, Raytheon will provide 42 next-generation APG-79 radars that will be equipped on the F/A-18 tactical aircraft.

The APG-79 AESA radar hardware has 10-15 times greater reliability over the APG-73 mechanically scanned array radars which were installed on the initial batch of F/A-18 fighters.

The upgraded APG-79 radars will provide high level of aircrew situational awareness and feature multi-target tracking capability.
