Raytheon to provide AESA radars for US Navy’s F/A-18 fighters


El SEGUNDO, US (BNS): US Navy has awarded a $52 million contract to Raytheon to produce APG-79 active electronically scanned array (AESA) radars for the F/A-18 Super Hornet tactical aircraft.

The AESA radars will provide the Navy with the most advanced technology available, including enhanced capabilities that will allow aircrews to detect and identify targets beyond the reach of most missiles.

This third retrofit contract brings orders for the update of block II F/A-18s up to 57, Raytheon said.

Work for the programme will be completed at Raytheon facilities in El Segundo, California, the company said, adding that deliveries are expected to begin in October 2012.
