FORT WORTH, Texas. The F-16V completes its maiden voyage, flying with Northrop Grumman’s APG-83 Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) Scalable Agile Beam Radar (SABR).

According to company officials, this marks as the first time the APG-83 AESA SABR radar flies on a Lockheed Martin’s F-16 aircraft. The avionics in the F-16V includes a cockpit Center Pedestal Display, a mission computer, and a high-capacity Ethernet data bus.

“The new F-16V configuration includes numerous enhancements designed to keep the F-16 at the forefront of international security, strengthening its position as the world’s foremost combat-proven 4th Generation fighter aircraft,” says Rod McLean, vice president and general manager of Lockheed Martin’s F-16/F-22 Integrated Fighter Group.
