Boeing Team Awarded AESA Radar Modernization Contract for US Air Force F-15E

F-15E

ST. LOUIS, Oct. 30, 2008 — The Boeing Company [NYSE: BA] has been awarded a $238 million System Development and Demonstration (SDD) contract by the U.S. Air Force to modernize the radar system on F-15E fighter aircraft.

The RMP will incorporate an Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) antenna with more-supportable radar electronics. The AESA replaces the APG-70 radar currently integrated on the F-15E, improving radar reliability, maintainability and performance while reducing support costs. When integrated into the F-15E weapons system, the AESA radar will improve detection and tracking of enemy targets, including small targets.
