Description: The Grifo S is a fourth generation, multimode, pulse Doppler, X-band radar with navigation, air-to-air and air-to-surface modes along with fire control and IFF capabilities. The Grifo radar family offers modular architecture with a number of compact Line Replaceable Units (LRUs) to fit into a wide variety of tactical fighter aircraft. The Grifo S is the more powerful version of the Grifo family fitted with a 560W transmitter and provides guidance for beyond the visual range (BVR) air-to-air missiles. Besides, these radars offer high resolution Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) and Inverse SAR (ISAR) imagery. SELEX ES/Galileo has produced more than 450 Grifo radars since the early 2000s.

The Grifo F is a variant optimized for the F-5E/F aircraft while the Grifo F1 and Grifo S1 were optimized for the Mirage F1 jet. The Grifo M3 and Grifo M5 variants were optimized for the Mirage III and Mirage V fighter aircraft respectively. The Grifo S5 was also intended for the Mirage V. The Grifo L was optimized for use by the Czech Republic L-159 aircraft. Grifo 7 and Grifo 7PG were optimized for the Mig-21 and F/J-7PG jets. Grifo S7 was optimized for the Pakistani Air Force JF-17 jet. The Grifo 2000 and Grifo 16 variants were intended for the F-16 aircraft. The Grifo radar is also intended for the Mirage 2000, Mig-23, Mig-25 and Mig-29 aircraft.
