The RACR team highlighted the multirole capabilities RACR could bring to the F-16 Fighting Falcon, which included executing a range of air-to-air and air-to-ground modes.
The RACR team completed development in a record 24 months.
The RACR is the latest addition to Raytheon's family of radar products, which includes the APG-79 and APG-63 now flying on U.
In November 2008, the RACR successfully began integration testing in the Lockheed Martin system integration laboratory at the company's Fort Worth, Texas, facility.
