52nd FW first in AF to upgrade F-16s with AESA radar systems
U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class Kylie Robey, 52nd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron F-16 avionics apprentice, works alongside Lockheed-Martin contractors to install a new active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar system onto a 480th Fighter Squadron F-16C Fighting Falcon at Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany, May 20, 2022. AESA is the successor of traditional passive radar systems (PESA), with the upgraded system carrying more transmitters, which allow for more-precise, longer-ranged and more jamming-resistant scanning of airspace.
