Radar Warning Receiver (RWR) systems improve survivability through enhanced situational awareness

The C-130J, one of several aircraft using an upgraded AN/ALR-56M Radar Warning Receiver (RWR) by BAE Systems to detect potential threats.
BAE Systems produces and services Radar Warning Receiver (RWR) systems that improve mission survivability for tactical, fighter, and transport aircraft around the world, including advanced system upgrades in legacy fleets.

When pilots and crews undertake a mission, their aircraft's RWR system provides them with vital and timely information about potential threats from the ground and air. The primary function of the RWR is to detect potentially hostile radars, providing pilots and crews enhanced situational awareness and improved survivability.

BAE Systems is a leader in electronic warfare technology, including Radar Warning Receivers that advance and support both line-fit RWR systems and retro-fit RWR upgrades worldwide.

The AN/ALR-56C RWR is operational on F-15 aircraft and provides:

  • Expanded situational awareness for increased survivability.
  • Ability to detect and identify modern threat radars in dense environments.
  • Integrated operation with jammer, countermeasures dispenser, and other avionics.
  • Detection and identification of modern search, acquisition, and tracking radars of ground- based or aircraft weapon systems.
  • Reliable threat warning for effective countermeasure response.
  • User programmability allowing system threat changes after delivery.

The AN/ALR-56C digital upgrade RWR provides:

  • Rapid detection of advanced threats in dense environments.
  • Integrated operation with jammer, countermeasures dispenser, and other avionics.
  • Detection and identification of airborne and ground-based modern search, acquisition, and tracking radars.
  • Compatibility and interoperability with Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) type radars.

The AN/ALR-56M RWR is operational on the F-16 and C-130J, providing:

  • Situational awareness for long-range response strategy/threat avoidance.
  • Easy interoperability with a wide range of aircraft and avionics.
  • Demonstrated high operational Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) and low Mean Time to Repair (MTTR).
  • Two-level maintenance that lowers lifecycle costs.
  • User programmability allowing system threat changes after delivery.
  • Effective threat warning and primary sensor/control
  • Easy retrofit into numerous aircraft utilizing installed antennas and displays.
