BALTIMORE -- Northrop Grumman has successfully installed a production APG-83 Scalable Agile Beam Radar (SABR) on a U.S. Marine Corps F/A-18C Hornet at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, Calif.

The fit check, performed August 2 at the request of the Marine Corps, demonstrated SABR as a low-risk option for installation on F/A-18C/D Hornets, and that the radar can be integrated with the aircraft's power, cooling, and avionics systems.

"The Marine Corps asked for an Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) solution due to the radar's increase in reliability and sustainability with no decrease in operational performance," said Greg Simer, vice president, integrated avionics systems, Northrop Grumman. "The Marine Corps' stated objective is to modify an in-production, fielded AESA while meeting the current size, weight, power and cooling requirements of the F/A-18 C/D. We have proven our production APG-83 SABR radar fits into the F/A-18 C/D, achieving the objectives and bringing the technical maturity needed to attain the Marine Corps fleet insertion timelines."

The APG-83 is a multifunction AESA fire control radar that delivers fifth-generation fighter capabilities to counter and defeat increasingly sophisticated threats. The radar has already been selected as an AESA upgrade for the F-16 by several countries around the world.

Northrop Grumman is competing to replace the mechanically-scanned radar on F/A-18C/Ds with an AESA radar. The Marine Corps plans to upgrade the radar on approximately 100 F/A-18C/Ds. The APG-83 will address survivability, reliability and maintainability concerns for the U.S. Marine Corps.
