airborne radar

A radar on board aircraft. This may be an air-interception radar normally fitted on combat aircraft. This may also be an early warning radar as fitted on AEW (airborne early warning) or AWACS (airborne warning and control system) aircraft, but it does not include weather radar fitted on aircraft.
