EDITORS COMMENTS In this cutaway drawing, we delve into the intricate complexities of the Boeing E-3A Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) aircraft. This illustration, produced by the skilled artists at FlightGlobal, offers a unique perspective into the inner workings of this military marvel. At the heart of the E-3A is its powerful radar system, housed in the rotating radome located at the rear of the fuselage. The radar system provides 360-degree surveillance coverage, enabling the aircraft to detect and track aircraft, missiles, and other targets at extended ranges. The data collected by the radar is processed by the onboard computers and displayed on the crew's consoles, allowing them to make informed decisions in real-time. Surrounding the radar system are the various avionics and communication systems that enable the E-3A to function as an airborne command and control center. These systems include navigation equipment, data link terminals, and communication gear, all of which are essential for the aircraft to maintain contact with other military assets and coordinate air defense operations. The illustration also highlights the aircraft's impressive fuel capacity, with multiple tanks located throughout the fuselage and wings. This allows the E-3A to remain airborne for extended periods of time, providing continuous surveillance and control capabilities. The Boeing E-3A AWACS is a testament to human ingenuity and engineering prowess. This cutaway drawing offers a fascinating glimpse into the intricacies of this aircraft, providing insight into its capabilities and the complex systems that make it an invaluable asset to military operations around the world.
