Northrop Grumman has handed over the 500th unit of a fire control radar system for the F-35 Lightning II combat aircraft.

The AN/APG-81 radar has electronic warfare and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance features and is designed to support various mission types through long-range air-to-ground and air-to-air nodes, the company said Thursday.

Aside from the radar, Northrop has been building wing skins, avionics, mission-planning applications, sensor systems, training tools, simulation test capacities and center fuselage for the aircraft.

“As a principal member of the Lockheed Martin-led F-35 industry team, our continued investment in facilities and equipment, production enhancements in process and design, and expanded supply chain capability through second sourcing helped reach this milestone,“ said Chris Fitzpatrick, director of F-35 programs at Northrop.
