Northrop Grumman’s SABR Brings 5th Generation Fighter Radar To F-16
WARBIRD RADIO – Northrop Grumman’s Scalable Agile Beam Radar (SABR) designed for the F-16 fighter aircraft recently demonstrated its autonomous, all-environment precision targeting capability, which will enhance the aircraft’s mission capabilities. The capability, known as Auto Target Cueing (ATC), uses high-definition synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images to locate and prioritize targets of interest and display them to the pilot. The active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar architecture allows it to carry out this function while performing other tasks at the same time.
