Raytheon Active Electronically Scanned Array Radars Surpass One Million Flight Hours

Raytheon's family of Active Electronically Scanned Array radars for fighter jets has surpassed more than 1 million operational flight hours with two U.S. services and four international customers. Raytheon was the first company to produce AESA radars for tactical aircrafts. In May 2017, they delivered their 1,000th production unit of this radar.

The AESA radars have been the primary targeting sensor on F-15 Eagles, F/A-18 Super Hornets and E/A-18 GROWLERs in every major U.S. air combat operation since the mid-2000s, including:

  • Operation Enduring Freedom
  • Operation Iraqi Freedom
  • Operation Odyssey Dawn
  • Operation Unified Protection
  • Operation Inherent Resolve

The company is investing in AESA technologies to ensure today's fighters maintain their edge for decades to come while also developing advanced radar capabilities for the next generation of tactical aircraft. Click here to learn more about AWSA Radars from Raytheon.
