AN/APG-66

The AN/APG-66 radar is a solid state medium range (up


to 150 km) Pulse-doppler planar array radar originally
designed by the Westinghouse Electric Corporation (now
Northrop Grumman) for use in the F-16 Fighting Falcon. This radar was employed in all domestic and export
versions of the F-16 A/B models throughout the production. Subsequent upgrades have been installed in many
varying aircraft types, including the U.S. Customs and
Border Protections C-550 Cessna Citation, US Navy P3 Orion, and Piper PA-42 Cheyenne IIs, as well as the
Small Aerostat Surveillance System (SASS). The radar
system consists of the following line-replaceable units:
Antenna
Transmitter
APQ-164 Passive electronically scanned array for B-1 Lancer
bomber

Low-power radio frequency


Digital signal processor

Radar computer

APG-66(V)2 upgrade of base radar deloped for


the F-16 Fighting Falcon Block 15 Mid Life Update program. New signal processor, higher output power, improved reliability. Range in clutter/jamming environment increased to 83 km.

in ground-mapping mode is quadrupled, and
is reported to be close to that oered by
SAR techniques. Used for modernization of
F-16A/B eet of Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Portugal and the Netherlands in the mid1990s.
