Selex Galileo and Israel’s Aeroeletronica International have signed a contract for the supply of 11 additional Grifo F/BR radars to upgrade Brazilian Air Force F-5 planes.

The Grifo fire control radar, developed as a solution for the F-5 retrofit, features different operating modes to support multirole missions effectively and to deliver unrivalled situational awareness and strike capability to its pilots.

The various modes including air-to-air, air-to-surface, search and identification of targets support navigation and a flight-proven suite of functions to combat electronic threats.

The radar and its variants are currently in use with the air forces of Singapore, Brazil, Czech Republic, Pakistan and South Korea.
