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)2 is a major radar upgrade for the US Air Force F-15C aircraft. This upgrade will add AESA (Active Electronically Scanned Array) capabilities to the proven APG-63 radar. AESA technology will increase F-15C's combat performance, while enhancing reliability and maintainability. The promising AESA technology is being developed for the fifth generation fighter aircraft like the F/A-22 Raptor and the F-35 Lightning II. In 2006 the APG-63(V)2 was operational with an US Air Force F-15C/D squadron based at Elmendorf Air Force Base, Alaska.

The AN/APG-63(V)3 is a follow-on AESA radar that leverages the APG-63(V)2 improvements and the US Navy's APG-79 AESA radar technology. It is intended to equip F-15C/D aircraft owned by the Air National Guard. The APG-63(V)3 entered operational evaluation in late 2006 and became fully operational on the F-15C/D aircraft by the end of 2010.
