Australian defence company MRad has won a A$18 million ($24 million) contract to provide the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) with a Hornet Radar Evaluation Facility for its McDonnell Douglas F-18 fleet. The RAAF will use the system for technical evaluation of its AN/APG-65 radar's performance under simulated operational flight scenarios as well as evaluating operational flight-test programmes which may affect RAAF F-18 operations.
