The suite of microwave and RF apertures in a fighter, surveillance aircraft or spacecraft might be as many as 20 apertures distributed throughout the vehicle performing radar, data link, navigation, missile warning, direction finding, jamming or other functions over a frequency range covering several decades. There are apertures distributed over the platform that point forward and aft, right and left, as well as up and down. Some apertures will be shared for communications, radio navigation and identification (CNI) as well as identification, friend or foe (IFF) due to compatible frequencies and geometries. Data links such as JTIDS/Link 16 and Link 22 can share apertures with GPS and L-band satellite communications (L-SATCOM). There also may be dedicated data link apertures. EW apertures must be broadband by nature and can be shared with radar warning receivers (RWR), radar auxiliaries and some types of CNI.
