The Spirit of '76 was an IR&D program started in the early 1990's. A modified Norden AN/APG-76 radar was installed in two different pods - one for the U.S. Navy S-3 (Gray Wolf Program) and the other for the U.S. Air Force F-16 (Snake Eyes Program). These pod installations brought the full synthetic aperture air-ground capability of the
AN/APG-76 to the airplanes. A series of seven Newsletters were generated during the program and are available here for viewing.
