Agave

Agave was operating in X-Band multi-mode radar, with navigation and air combat capabilities, but optimized for guiding the air-to-sea AM39 “Exocet” missiles.

The antenna was a Cassegrain type, suitable for the monopulse technique.

It was used by the light fighter-bomber Fiat G91. In the French aircraft of the type Super Étendard (by Dassault-Breguet, it was replaced by the Anemone radar in 1990.
