Description: The Selex Galileo Vixen 500E is an X-band, compact, lightweight, active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar for fighter and lead-in fighter trainer aircraft such as Aermacchi's M-346 jet. It has been designed to meet the full spectrum of fire control radar operational requirements, detecting, identifying, prioritizing and engaging targets both airborne or at sea/on the ground, whilst remaining resistant to radar countermeasures. The solid state transmitter/receiver modules array provides high reliability and a SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) imagery resolution below 3 meters. Vixen 500E radar consists of three line replaceable units (LRUs), commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) components and uses an open architecture approach to make upgrades easy to implement without affecting the radar's software.
