The E-2 Hawkeye was the Navy’s first purpose-built Airborne Early Warning (AEW) aircraft. Nicknamed the “Hummer” for its distinctive engine sound, the Hawkeye’s prominent radar dish extended radar coverage for hundreds of miles.
Packed with a wide range of communications and sensor gear, the Hawkeye is truly a flying command center able not just to detect, track, and analyze targets but to share data with ships and aircraft in the battlegroup and coordinate weapons employment on dozens of platforms at once.
