Although it has been the incumbent radar supplier since the F-16 program began 40 years ago, Northrop Grumman “really took this competition seriously—that’s why we were motivated to develop this radar on company funds,” Ensor says. “From the beginning we treated this as a very difficult competition to win, as we were competing with a viable option.”

Raytheon says it “looks forward to meeting with Lockheed Martin Aeronautics to better understand the selection decision. In the meantime, we will continue pursuing other international opportunities, building on our partnership with BAE as we modernize South Korea’s KF-16 fleet.”
