Abstract:

Phased array radar systems, which emerged over 55 years ago, have continually evolved from the early 60s to present day. Over 55 years ago, U.S. phased array radar systems brought a new dimension or capability that is fully realized in todays all-solid-state arrays, such as those on the F-22 and F-35 military aircraft. This process of expanding phased array capability involved an evolutionary series of steps each decade. This paper cites the most prominent U.S.-deployed phased array radars as viewed by one phased-array radar advocate.
