A-7 on the USS Kitty Hawk

This is a good photo of the APQ-116 fire control radar in the A-7 Corsair.  The APQ-116 had many useful modes.  If I can remember correctly, they were, Weather, Fire Control, Bomb Direct, Ground Map, Terrain Following and Terrain Avoidance and Walleye Modes.  By modern standards, this system was antique.  It has a black and white display and a limited range and resolution.  The newer radars found on the F-14 Tomcat, the AUG-9, is much more sophisticated using a flat plate antenna and capability of tracking as many as six targets simultaneously.

For those that don't know, RADAR stands for Radio Detection and Ranging.
