AN/ALR-69A(V) Digital Radar Warning Receiver

The AN/ALR-69A(V) Digital Radar Warning Receiver (RWR) is designed to detect incoming radar signals, identify and characterize those signals to a specific threat, and alert the aircrew through the RWR System display. The system consists of external antennae mounted on the fuselage and wingtips. It provides a warning to the pilot of the direction and nature of the threat and automatically activates an appropriate countermeasures response. The ALR-69A is based on a digitally-controlled, 16 channel broadband receiver that scans within a specific frequency spectrum and is capable of adjusting to threat changes by modifications to the software.

ALR-69A(V) program started in August 2001 with flight tests beginning in late 2005. It replaces the older ALR-69(V) installed on C-130, F-16, A-10 and MH-53 aircraft. Ten systems were scheduled for delivery in 2007. The first ALR-69A(V) procurement contract was issued in August 2001 for 17 such systems. ALR-69A(V) solves the part-obsolescence problems on the ALR-69(V) radar warning receiver.
