The AN/ALR-67(V)3 digital radar warning receiver dramatically enhances the survivability of the warfighter through improved situational awareness.
The AN/ALR-67(V)3 is the advanced digital countermeasures receiving set now serving as the “System of Record” U.S. Navy radar warning receiver (RWR) on all front-line, carrier-based F/A-18 E/F Super Hornet tactical aircraft. In full rate production, it is the Naval Air Systems Command’s answer to a critical operational requirement — ensuring survivability in today’s complex, high-density environment.
The channelized receiver architecture allows successful detection of emitters in high pulse density, as well as interception of faint distant signals despite interference from strong nearby transmitters. The digital measurement path of the receiver uses leading edge digital technology for improved reliability and low cost through reduced parts count, and improved performance through precision digital parameter measurements. This is a key enabler for the advanced functionality needed to fulfill the requirements of major combat operations over the next several decades.
The AN/ALR-67(V)3 is fully integrated with all avionics equipment on the F/A-18 A/B/C/D Hornets, as well as that on the F/A-18E/F Super Hornets.
