Background[ edit ] Continual improvements in airborne radars through led to the construction of AEW airplanes by several different countries and several different armed forces.

The first carrier-based aircraft to perform these missions for the U. The problems facing the design engineers at Grumman were immense, and were compounded by having to constrain the design to enable the aircraft to operate from the older modified Essex-class aircraft carriers. Consequently, various height, weight and length restrictions had to be factored into the E-2A design, resulting in some handling characteristics which were less than ideal. The E-2A actually never operated from the modified Essex class carriers.

A Grumman E-2A Hawkeye in flight in the early s The first prototype, acting as an aerodynamic testbed only, flew on 21 October Particular difficulties were being experienced due to inadequate cooling in the closely packed avionics compartment. Early computer and complex avionics systems generated considerable heat; without proper ventilation this would lead to system failures. These failures continued long after the aircraft entered service and at one point reliability was so bad that the entire fleet of aircraft was grounded.

The unreliable rotary drum computer was replaced by a Litton L digital computer [7] [8] and various avionics systems were replaced — the upgraded aircraft were designated E-2Bs. In total, 49 of the 59 E-2As were upgraded to E-2B standard. The US Navy knew the design had much greater capability and had yet to achieve the performance and reliability parameters set out in the original design.

In April , a reliability improvement program was instigated. In addition, now that the capabilities of the aircraft were starting to be realized, more were desired; 28 new E-2Cs were ordered to augment the 49 E-2Bs that would be upgraded. Improvements in the new and upgraded aircraft were concentrated in the radar and computer performance.

Trials proved satisfactory and the E-2C was ordered into production, the first production machine performed its initial flight on 23 September The original E-2C, known as Group 0, consisted of 55 aircraft; the first aircraft became operational in and serving on carriers in the s and s, until they were replaced in first-line service by Group II aircraft.

US Navy Reserve used some aircraft for tracking drug smugglers. The type was commonly used in conjunction with Grumman F Tomcat fighters; monitoring airspace and then vectoring Tomcats over the Link-4A datalink to destroy potential threats with long range AIMC Phoenix missiles.

The first Group I aircraft entered service on August Upgrading the Group 0 aircraft to Group I specifications was considered, but the cost was comparable to a new production aircraft, so upgrades were not conducted.

Group I aircraft were only flown by the Atlantic fleet squadrons. This new version entered service in June and served with the Pacific and Atlantic Fleet squadrons. It is also fitted with a larger capacity vapor cycle avionics cooling system.

Starting in a hardware and software upgrade package began to be added to existing Hawkeye aircraft. This upgrade allows faster processing, double current trackfile capacity and access to satellite information networks. Hawkeye cockpits being upgraded include solid-state glass displays, and a GPS-approach capability.

Improvements included reduced vibrations and better maintainability as a result of the ability to remove prop blades individually instead of having to remove the entire prop and hub assembly. Small aircraft lack the size or weight allowances for all-spectrum low-observable features, leaving a vulnerability to detection by the UHF-band APY-9 radar, potentially detecting fifth-generation fighters like the Russian Sukhoi Su and the Chinese Chengdu J and Shenyang J Deliveries of initial production E-2Ds began in Truman as a part of carrier suitability testing.

The Navy plans for an initial operational capability by This feature will allow the aircraft to double its time on station to five hours, and increase total mission time from four to seven hours.

The E-2 is a high-wing airplane, with one Allison T56 turboprop engine shp rating on each wing [27] and retractable tricycle landing gear. A distinguishing feature of the Hawkeye is its foot 7. No other carrier-borne aircraft possesses one of these. It can also serve in an air traffic control capacity in emergency situations when land-based ATC is unavailable.

Stennis ; the aircraft has eight-blade propellers. The E-2A entered U. More recently, E-2Cs provided the command and control for both aerial warfare and land-attack missions during the Persian Gulf War. Hawkeyes have supported the U. Coast Guard , the U. Customs Service , and American federal and state police forces during anti-drug operations. In the mids, several U. Navy E-2Cs were made available to the U.

Coast Guard and the U. The U. Navy P-3 Orion aircraft in the CN role. During Operations Southern Watch and Desert Fox , Hawkeye crews continued to provide thousands of hours of air coverage, while providing air-to-air and air-to-ground command and control in a number of combat missions. However, the East coast wing was disestablished, all aircraft were organized into a single wing based at Point Mugu, California.

They provided battle management for attack of enemy ground targets, close-air-support coordination, combat search and rescue control, airspace management, as well as datalink and communication relay for both land and naval forces. During the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina , three Hawkeye squadrons two Regular Navy and one Navy Reserve were deployed in support of civilian relief efforts including Air Traffic Control responsibilities spanning three states, and the control of U.

Army , U. Navy, U. Air Force , U. Marine Corps , U. Bush as flying command posts and air traffic controllers over Iraq during Operation Inherent Resolve against the Islamic State.

It distributes the tactical picture to command centers and other assets through its onboard communication subsystems. Naval Exercises Naval Technology. E-2C Hawkeye Long one of the most recognizable aircraft to fly from the decks of U. Navy aircraft carriers because of the large rotodome perched atop its fuselage, the E-2 Hawkeye lives up to gawkeye nickname by providing all-weather airborne early warning to tactical commanders at sea. It will also allow the aircraft to loiter for longer period of time, further out.

Recently, in Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom, E-2 Hawkeyes provided critical airborne battle management and command and control functions supporting numerous close air support and battlefield interdiction missions.

Of course the good looking Kinetic offerings in 1: Modified TBM Avenger torpedo-bombers and later single-engine AF Guardians filled the role in the immediate postwar years until the development of the WF Tracer, which incorporated a TF Trader modified with twin-tails and a radome mounted atop the fuselage.
