Joseph Ensor, vice president and general manager of Northrop Grumman Corporation's (NYSE:NOC) Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance and Targeting Systems Division, will discuss technological advances and recent milestone achievements involving the Scalable Agile Beam Radar (SABR) being offered by the company for the U.S. Air Force's F-16 radar upgrade program.
Northrop Grumman's SABR is an affordable, scalable, multifunction active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar specifically designed for retrofit in current F-16s. SABR provides improved situational awareness, greater detection, high-resolution synthetic aperture radar maps, interleaved air-to-air and air-to-surface mode operations, and an all-environment precision strike capability. Northrop Grumman has nearly four decades of F-16 radar integration experience, and has supplied F-16 operators with more than 6,000 fire control radars during that time. The company also supplies the AESA fire control radars for the F-16, F-22 and F-35 aircraft.
