Raytheon has delivered its 200th APG-79 active electronically scanned array radar (AESA) to Boeing for installation on a US Navy F/A-18E/F, EA-18G aircraft or a Royal Australian Air Force F/A-18F Super Hornet.

Raytheon Tactical Airborne Systems business development executive Fred Lanes said AESA technology had improved fighter combat capabilities and situational awareness for aircrews.

The APG-79 delivers 1,000%-1,500% more functionality than the mechanically scanned array radars.

The APG-79 is in operation with more than a dozen US Navy squadrons.

Boeing F/A-18 and EA-18 programmes vice-president Kory Mathews said the APG-79 AESA radar was a core component of US Navy EA-18G aircraft, which will be deployed for the first time in 2010.

The Royal Australian Air Force received its first five aircraft marking the delivery of the first foreign military sale of Super Hornets equipped with an APG-79 radar.
