Raytheon AESA for F-15E Enters LRIP

While the United States continues development and testing of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) it must continue to utilize its older fighter and attack aircraft. The F-15, F-16 and F/A-18 all originally entered service in the late Seventies and Eighties but have continued to be upgraded with new electronics, systems and weapons. As part of this all 3 will eventually be fitted with new Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar systems to replace the mechanically scanned systems currently used. The AESA offer better reliability and ease of maintenance over the older systems.

Raytheon (RTN) is already producing a new radar for the F/A-18 used by the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps and several allied nations. Over 300 have been delivered for retrofit on aircraft.

Raytheon is also providing the new radars for the F-15C and F-15E aircraft used by the Air Force and Air National Guard (ANG). The F-15C variants have begun receiving them and a contract was recently awarded for the Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) of the one for the F-15E strike version. Initially 6 systems will be delivered as part of this contract.

Even with the threat of budget reductions in the near future these programs will continue. They will most likely see cuts in quantities and slower development but they are necessary to provide the capabilities needed by these aircraft.

First F-15C With Boeing’s AESA Radar Declared Operational

Boeing (BA), the U.S. Air Force and Florida Air National Guard displayed the first operational F-15C with a new Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar. The aircraft was shown at the Jacksonville Air Guard facility.

Boeing is operating under a contract to upgrade twenty-four F-15C aircraft for both the U.S.A.F. and the ANG with the new radar. AESA provides better performance and reliability due in part to the elimination of the mechanical scanning parts. Boeing also provides support and sustainment to the F-15 fleet in use with the American military.

The Air Defense of the United States has assumed a greater role since 9/11 and the ANG provides the primary capability. It operates F-15 and F-16 fighters but these aging aircarft will begin to be retired soon. The long term plan is to replace a significant number of them with F-35 JSF now that F-22 production is being ended at 180 odd by the Obama Administration.
