Description: The APG-63 radar system combines long range acquisition and attack capabilities with automatic features to provide the instant information and computations required during air-to-air and air-to-surface engagements. It was the first airborne radar system to incorporate software programmable signal processor. That means APG-63s software can be upgraded without replacing the hardware. The APG-63 radars are installed on F-15A/B and early F-15C/D aircraft.

The AN/APG-63(V)1 is an upgraded variant of baseline APG-63 radar. APG-63(V)1 upgrade improves reliability and maintainability through replacement of some radar parts with new state-of-the-art hardware. The US Air Force procurred up to 160 upgraded APG-63(V)1 radars through 2005. These radar systems were integrated on the F-15C/D aircraft.
