Description: The Scalable Agile Beam Radar - Global Strike (SABR-GS) is a full performance, multi-function active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar derived from the SABR fighter aircraft radar. Northrop-Grumman has developed the SABR-GS radar to equip the US Air Force's B-1B Lancer bomber fleet replacing the APQ-164 radar. The SABR-GS is almost three times larger than the fighter jet's APG-83 SABR sensor. It offers large synthetic aperture radar (SAR) maps with unprecedented target area detail and digital maps under all weather conditions. Besides, advanced image processing and sensor integration provide a significant advantage in situational awareness and give the B-1 powerful new capabilities for intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and targeting (ISTAR). Open architecture standards have been used to integrate data from other onboard sensors, enabling continued innovation and affordability for the life of the system. The US Air Force awarded a $21 million risk reduction contract in 2011 for the development of the new radar. The SABR-GS active phased antenna radar was unveiled in early May 2015 and is expected to extend the service life of the B-1 bomber by at least 25 years beyond 2040.
