The Israeli Air force (IAF) has selected the Raytheon APG-82(V)1 radar for the upgrade of its F-15I jet fighters.
The advanced radar will be installed as part of a comprehensive upgrade program of the F-15I.
The APG-82(V)1 optimizes the F-15Is multirole mission capability. In addition to its extended range and improved multi-target track and precision engagement capabilities, the APG-82(V)1 offers improvement in system reliability over the legacy APG-70 radar. This phenomenal level of reliability and maintainability will result in significant maintenance cost savings for the Israeli Air Force.
Aircraft equipped with the APG-82(V)1 AESA radar can simultaneously detect, identify and track multiple air and surface targets at longer ranges than ever before. The longer standoff range facilitates persistent target observation and information sharing for informed decision making. This superior battlespace awareness supports greater tactical mission capability. The result: greatly increased aircraft-aircrew effectiveness and survivability.
Raytheon’s ground-breaking AESA technology has consistently proven its exceptional performance, reliability and mission capabilities.
