The article informs that first deliveries are being made of a new, secrecy-shrouded radar that soon will be carried by U.S. Navy F/A-18E/F Super Hornets. Raytheon officials say they delivered the first low-rate initial production (LRIP) radar to Boeing a week ahead of schedule. They expect to build at least 415 of these radars for Boeing that will kick off a bifurcated program to equip new-production aircraft and to reequip in 2007-10 the 123 F/A-18E/Fs that are already flying with the Navy using less advanced radars. There are also at least two reference points to the radar's acuity, which appears from imagery to be in the 6-12-in.
