AN/APQ-158

AN/APQ-158 is operating in Ku-Band airborne multimode forward-looking radar used primarily for terrain-following/terrain-avoidance at low altitudes. It is a digitized and improved version of the AN/APQ-126.

The radar was installed in the helicopter Sikorsky MH-53J Enhanced Pave Low III used during the Operation Desert Storm.
