The APG-68(V)9 multimode radar
, built by Northrop Grumman, is now the standard radar version on all Lockheed Martin F-16 Advanced Block 50/52 aircraft.
Navy's AN/APS-147 multimode radar
and commercial APS-143 maritime surveillance radar.
The Turkish configuration being integrated consists of the APG-68(V)9 multimode radar
(currently being installed on new Advanced Block 50/52 F-16s), color cockpit displays and recorders, new core avionics processors, the Joint Helmet-Mounted Cueing System, Link 16 data link, advanced interrogator/transponder, integrated precision navigation, an upgraded version of the Self-Protection Electronic Warfare System (SPEWS II) and compatibility with a number of new weapons and targeting systems.
According to Rex Wade, Bell-Boeing's electronic warfare lead test engineer, some factors can't be effectively tested during flight, such as the interaction between the radar-warning receiver and electronic countermeasures and the aircraft's multimode radar
Upgrades such as a more powerful Rolls-Royce engine, reconditioned APG-65 multimode radar
components and a cockpit compatible with night-vision goggles are installed in a new fuselage, along with 287 reused or modified components from the day-attack version.
AMEX:STZ) Monday announced that it has received a $500,000 contract to develop next-generation, high-voltage power supplies for multimode radar
systems used on fighter and surveillance aircraft.

Specifically, VX-1 will evaluate the performance of the MH-60R aircraft and its on-board weapons subsystems, including the multimode radar
, electronic support measures and radar warning receiver, airborne dipping sonar and acoustics.
The AN/APQ-170(V) 1 radar set provides the Air Force with a multimode radar
capable of terrain following/avoidance, weather detection and ground mapping.
During TECHEVAL, the Navy's HX-21 and VX-1 squadrons simultaneously tested the operational and development performance of all on-board weapons subsystems, with specific attention focused on the multimode radar
, electronic support measures (ESM) and radar warning receiver, airborne dipping sonar and acoustics, and the fusion of multiple data sources to reduce operator workload.
The LIFT version bridges the gap between initial pilot training and operational training and differs from the T-50 advanced jet trainer version with the addition of a multimode radar
, gun and a full weapons control system to the seven store stations.
The Lead-In Fighter Trainer version also has an internal 20mm gun, a modern multimode radar
and a multirole weapons capability with seven external store stations.
