Boeing awards Raytheon Follow-On Contract for APG-63(V)3 AESA Electronically Scanned Array Radars

Boeing Company has awarded Raytheon Company a follow-on contract for the sixth production lot of APG-63(V)3 active electronically scanned array radars for United States Air Force and Air National Guard F-15C aircraft.

"We have been a partner on the F-15 for more than 40 years," said Mark Kula, vice president of Tactical Airborne Systems for Raytheon's Space and Airborne Systems business. "This recent contract enables continued delivery of our APG-63(V)3 AESA radar that provides unprecedented situational awareness for the U.S. Air Force and Air National Guard."

The original contract from Boeing began in 2007 as part of the F-15C upgrade program. To date, more than 46 radar systems plus spares have been delivered. Production lot six, awarded in March of 2013, includes radar modification kits and spares for the Air Force and Air National Guard.

Raytheon recently delivered its 500th tactical AESA radar – an industry first. The company's AESA product line, which is flown on F-15, F/A-18 and EA-18G aircraft, has achieved more than 400,000 operational flight hours.

The APG-63(V)3 AESA radar is an all-weather, multi-mode radar that offers extended range, improved tracking and precision engagement for the F-15C. Designed for easy integration of growth options and technology advances, this versatile radar provides the F-15 fleet with significantly enhanced air-to-air capabilities and gives warfighters a substantial combat edge.
