Description: The Raytheon AN/APG-82(V)1 Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar system has been designed for the modernization of the United States Air Force's F-15E aircraft fleet. In November 2007, Boeing selected Raytheon to provide an AESA radar for the F-15E modernization program which aims to extend its service life beyond 2035. Under the terms of the contract Raytheon might upgrade up to 224 F-15Es with this new radar system. On September 15, 2009, the radar was given the AN/APG-82(V)1 designation.
The APG-82 radar will provide next generation air-to-air and air-to-surface capabilities for the F-15E aircraft. It uses technologies already proven on the Super Hornet and Growler's APG-79 and F-15C's APG-63(V)3 AESA radar systems. Compared to the current F-15E's APG-70 radar, it will offer extended range and improved multi-target tracking and precision-engagement capabilities while having more than 20 times the APG-70 system reliability.
