Northrop Delivers F-16 AESA Radar System to Lockheed; Jeff Leavitt Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting event

F16FleetNorthrop Grumman has delivered an active electronically scanned array radar to Lockheed Martin under an F-16 radar modernization program.

Lockheed contracted Northrop to provide its APG-83 Scalable Agile Beam Radar systems for the U.S.’ and Taiwan’s F-16 fighters, Northrop said Friday.

“The progress to date in the APG-83 program reflects our enduring commitment to providing American and allied F-16 pilots with significant operational capabilities that give them the advantage for decades to come,” said Jeff Leavitt, vice president of Northrop’s combat avionics systems business unit.

The company designed the APG-83 to support air-to-air as well as air-to-ground surveillance operations.

Northrop says it has also built AESA fire control radars for the F-16 Block 60, F-22 Raptor and F-35 aircraft.
