F-16 HARM Targeting System (HTS) R6 and R7 Mission
The F-16 High-Speed Anti-Radiation Missile (HARM) targeting system detects and provides targeting information on enemy air defense radar outside the lethal range of their associated surface-to-air missiles (SAM). The system supports the F-16’s Suppression/Destruction of Enemy Air Defenses (SEAD/DEAD) mission. The HARM Targeting System (HTS) enables employment of the AGM-88 HARM in the “range known” mode the missile’s most lethal mode.
HTS targeting information increases HARM lethal range by 25 percent and increases the probability of hitting the target radar. The HTS Release 7 version will provide a precision targeting capability needed for accurate employment of GPS-aided munitions as well as HARM, with increased situational awareness and detection range.
