AWACS APY-2 Support

AWACS APY-2 Radar Support

The E-3 Sentry is an Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) aircraft that provides all-weather surveillance, Command, Control and Communications needed by commanders of air tactical forces. Proven in wartime operations such as Desert Storm, Allied Force and more recently Enduring Freedom, as well as ongoing peacekeeping and humanitarian efforts, AWACS is the premier air battle command and control aircraft in the world today.

Northrop Grumman Electronic Systems (ES) has a long heritage in the development and production of Airborne Early Warning (AEW) radars. As the supplier to Boeing for the AN/APY-1 and AN/APY-2 radar systems used on the E-3, and the AN/APY-2 radar system used on the E-767, Northrop Grumman has continued as a leader in the development of radar technology for airborne applications.
