Boeing Achieves Major Milestone with Installation of MESA Antenna on First Wedgetail Aircraft

Boeing has installed the Multi-role Electronically Scanned Array antenna on the first 737-700 for Australia's Project Wedgetail, an airborne early warning and control program. The Northrop Grumman-built MESA antenna, at 35.5 feet long and weighing more than three tons, is the critical sensor aboard the aircraft. It's designed to provide optimal performance in range, tracking, and accuracy.
