    Is that picture accurate? I thought SPY-6 needed separate arrays for both the S and X band radars.

    Yes, the first twelve sets will use existing SPQ-9B rotating radars for the x-band component. The 13th radar set delivered will use a new x-band radar. Take all this with a grain of salt as the base source is rather old. A cursory search did not turn up much else.
