OVERVIEW: The AN/ASQ-213 HARM Targeting System (HTS) is a pod-mounted system used by F-16 to detect, identify and locate radarsOVERVIEW: The AN/ASQ-213 HARM Targeting System (HTS) is a pod-mounted system used by F-16 to detect, identify and locate radars and provide targeting information to AGM-88 HARM missiles.
NOTES: The AN/ASQ-213 is used on F-16 Block 50/52 aircraft to engage SEAD targets faster and more accurately, giving them the same EW abilities as the F-4G Wild Weasel. The HTS can rapidly generate ranges to target radars, as well as to provide greater discretion between different types of enemy radars. HTS has been exported to Israel.
