Summary

In 1963, Westinghouse was awarded a contract to build the AWG-10 Missile Control System for the F-4 Phantom. The AWG-10 provides search and track data to launch both all-weather Sparrow and Sidewinder guided missiles. This was the first multi-mode radar set that included pulse-doppler look-down capability as well as a comprehensive built-in-test (BIT) system.
