Exelis wins $8.4M contract to upgrade F-16 fire control radar

Exelis has won an $8.4 million contract from Lockheed Martin to supply Continuous Wave Illuminator subsystems for the F-16 Fighting Falcon aircraft.

The subsystem is a transmitter that works with the F-16’s fire control radar and mission computer to provide guidance for semi-active missiles, Exelis said in a release.

The new system is much lighter and smaller than the legacy system.
