The Qadib Passive Electronically Scanned Array Radar is a Passive Electronically Scanned Array Radar for aircraft and mobile land vehicles. While it is, for now, mostly used on the Kyrenaian Aircraft Factories KAF-16 Saqr Multirole Fighter, it is planned to also equip the Kyrenaian Aircraft Factories KAF-23 Armala Stealth Interceptor.

Operating on the X-band, the Qadib features three modes, ground mapping, Doppler Beam Sharpening and Synthetic Aperture Radar, can detect targets in the air, on the ground and on the sea's surface. The radar has been developed to also detect and follow low-observable and stealth aircraft - under moderate circumstances, the Qadib can detect a stealth fighter with a radar cross-section of 0.01 m² at a range of 100 kilometres.

The Qadib can track up to thirty airborne threats at ranges of up to 400 kilometres and attack up to ten with beam-riding missiles. The same device, in ground-attack mode, provides mapping of the terrain, allowing to attack up to four ground targets with guided ammunition while still searching the horizon for enemy aircraft.
