Airborne fire control radars (FCRs) on fast strike aircraft are the quintessential pulse Doppler radars. They must work in a wide variety of air-to-air and air-to-ground modes, they must be lightweight and compact, yet they have to achieve long detection ranges in the presence of extreme clutter scenes and be capable of tracking a large number of agile targets, all of which must be highly automated, especially for single seat aircraft, to minimize the workload on the aircrew.
