Raytheon’s APG-82 Radars to Support US Air Force F-15E Radar Modernization Program

Raytheon Company has received its second contract from Boeing Company. This contract targets Raytheon’s low-rate initial production (LRIP) of active electronically scanned array radar systems to be adopted in the U.S. Air Force F-15E Radar Modernization Program.

Raytheon's APG-82(V)1 AESA radar is capable of detection, identification and tracking of multiple air and surface targets concurrently at longer ranges more efficiently than the existing APG-70 radar. The system ensures superior reliability with low Air Force maintenance costs.

According to Mark Kula, VP of Tactical Airborne Systems for Raytheon's Space and Airborne Systems business, using Raytheon's APG-82 radars, the F-15E pilots can confidently enter battle missions, as they are armed with the advanced airborne radar system. Raytheon is the leader in AESA radar production by delivering over 400 systems in addition to achieving 300,000 operational flight hours on multiple platforms.

Raytheon plans to commence the delivery of the LRIP-2 radar systems during February 2014. Final delivery of the initial LRIP lot of six APG-82(V)1 radars will be completed as intended.

Having 2011 sales of $25 B and with 71,000 global employees, Raytheon Company is a technology provider that is dedicated to fields like defense, homeland security and other government global markets. Furthermore, the company offers advanced mission systems integration, electronics, and other potential in the areas of effects, sensing, and command, control, communications and intelligence systems, and also extensive mission support services. Raytheon is based in Waltham, Massachusetts.
