An airborne AWG-9 illuminating for, and handing off targeting data to, a boosted Phoenix fired from a box launcher on the ship?

I wonder if AWG-9 and a couple of Phoenix could be worked into a Seaking or even a Seahawk?  Maybe even install the AWD -9 in a setup similar to the Seaking AEW.
I know the USN's Kamon SH-2 Seasprite was eveluated with Aim-7 Sparrow AAM's! If I can only find the pics??
This would be much lighter, simpler and cheaper to implement than a AWG-9/Aim-54 arranagement!
