AN/APY-10

The AN/APY-10 is an operating in X-Band long-range multifunction radar developed for the Boeing P-8 Poseidon maritime patrol and surveillance aircraft. The radar is optimized for maritime, littoral and overland surveillance. It replaces the AN/APS-137 radar. In technical terms the AN/APY-10 mechanically scanned radar is a development of Raytheon’s AN/APS-149 radar. Compared to the AN/APS-137, it is smaller in size, lighter, and uses less power. It offers periscope detection mode, long-range detection and classification of maritime targets, and synthetic aperture for overland surveillance.

The Indian version AN/APY-10(I) has additional air-to-air modes.
