    Lockheed has also upgraded its TPS-77 family to GaN and it is the first US GaN radar to be exported

    Old radar types never die; they just phased array

      You are referring to what the MiG-31 are actually doing for decades? Or are you instead describing the way any ESA radar work, combining the emissions of a whole array of transceiver in a single wave front?

      Seems me you make confusion between the overall number of emission point and the overall emission power.
      Twelve radar emitting together would cover a way greater area but there would not be a single beam twelve time more powerful...

        Check date of post... I doubt you are going to get a response. I believe lukos was banned a few months ago.
