Northrop Grumman Corp. (NYSE: NOC) said that its Scalable Agile Beam Radar (SABR) has completed several significant program development milestones.
Last July, SABR was competitively selected by Lockheed Martin Corp. (NYSE: LMT) for the F-16 Radar Modernization Program (RMP). The F-16 RMP develops the new active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar for the US Air Force´s Combat Avionics Programmed Extension Suite (CAPES) and Taiwan F-16 retrofit programs. Since selection, the company has completed three major development and design reviews with Lockheed Martin and the Air Force. In addition, several engineering and manufacturing development (EMD) systems are now in production, with the first to be delivered to Lockheed Martin later this year.
The F-16 RMP is designed to keep the worldwide F-16 fleet viable in future threat environments and to improve system reliability, maintainability and affordability.
