They'll most likely do what they did for the APG-77v1. Take some software and hardware elements from the APG-85 and introduce it to the radar to give it more multifunction capability along with a boost in range. My guess is if they did do this it would be APG-77v2.


We don't even know who is producing the AN/APG-85. So, that may not even be an option..... :|


Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) is developing AN/APG-85, an advanced Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar for the F-35 Lightning II.

Thanks I missed that release! Yet, next question is the APG-85 related (developed from) the existing APG-77/APG-81 or a totally new AESA Radar?
