Developed and produced by Northrop Grumman, the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye is the world’s only aircraft specifically designed as a carrier-based airborne early warning and control (AEW&C) system. With its structurally distinctive design – a rotating rotodome and four vertical stabilizer tail configuration – the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye provides unprecedented, 360-degree surveillance to the warfighter.

“The E-2D Advanced Hawkeye is the Navy’s primary airborne early warning and battle management command and control platform,” said Navy Capt. John S. Lemmon, program manager, E-2/C-2 Airborne Tactical Data System Program Office (PMA-231). “I’m confident that as the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye attains initial operational capability later this year, the E-2D will continue to be ready, relevant and capable for decades to come and continue serving the Navy Carrier Strike Group with distinction.”
