TheAïda nose radar is a conical scan fire control and navigation radar operating in X-Band. It was one of the predecessors of the Cyrano radar and was used in the Dassault Mirage F1AZ and Étendard IV M fighters in the mid-1950s.
About 100 of the radar were produced by EMD (Electronique Marcel Dassault, later part of Thomson CSF).
