The E-2C Hawkeye is an integral part of the U.S. Navy’s carrier air wing. A carrier-based tactical warning and control system platform, the E-2C provides all-weather airborne early warning and command and control functions for the carrier battle group. The Hawkeye carries three primary sensors: radar, IFF, and a passive detection system.
The training platforms at NBVC Point Mugu and NS Norfolk include a fully-simulated replica of the E-2C cockpit on a six-degree of freedom motion system to train operational flight training to pilot and co-pilots. Other devices provide tactical training to combat information officers, air control officers, and radar operators for the E-2C weapons systems.
