Boeing has selected BAE Systems to develop a new electronic warfare system for the US F-15 fleet. The Eagle Passive Active Warning Survivability System (EPAWSS) will be installed on US F-15s during coming upgrades. It will provide advanced aircraft protection, and improved situational awareness over the current TEWS system installed.

The current plan by the Air Force includes flying the F-15 until 2040, and will include replacing longerons, wings, and vertical fins on selected aircraft. The F-15 will fly until the sixth generation platforms are entering service some time after 2030.


BAE Systems has been selected by Boeing to develop and manufacture a new, all-digital electronic warfare system for the U.S. Air Force’s (USAF) fleet of F-15 fighter aircraft. The new electronic warfare system is part of a multi-billion dollar program to develop the Eagle Passive Active Warning Survivability System (EPAWSS), an integrated system that will provide advanced aircraft protection, significantly improved situational awareness, and support future USAF F-15 mission requirements.

“This selection builds on our extensive electronic warfare legacy, a history we were able to leverage to develop an executable, affordable, and low-risk solution for the F-15 fleet,” said Brian Walters, vice president and general manager of Electronic Combat Solutions at BAE Systems. “By upgrading to an enhanced all-digital system, the Air Force, in conjunction with the platform prime, Boeing, will provide next-generation electronic warfare capability to F-15C and F-15E aircraft to help keep the platform capable and mission-ready against current and future threats.”

Updating electronic packages is a step forward especially to bringing up to work well in with the 5th Gen fleet.BAE are always doing good stuff and will do quality work.Wings and vert fins are virtually a bolt on job but Longeron replacement is a biiiig job.Is the Airforce doing the Airframe work itself or will they contract it out?

They'll probably do it as they rotate through PDM, or other upgrades.
