BAE and Boeing seem to be on a roll lately with them being awarded a $478 million contract for the next stage of the Eagle Passive/Active Warning and Survivability System (EPAWSS) program.




The EMD phase, which will last until 2020, the company will further develop the EPAWSS design, integrate it with the F-15 and conduct risk reduction, the Pentagon said in a contracting announcement. More than 400 F-15C and F-15Es are set to receive EPAWSS. Boeing was selected last year as the prime contractor on the program, with subcontractor BAE Systems helping to develop the technology. According to BAE, EPAWSS is an all digital-electronic warfare suite that will improve the F-15’s situational awareness and provide aircraft protection in contested environments using advanced electronic countermeasures, radar warning, and increased chaff and flare capability. The system will replace the F-15 Tactical Electronic Warfare Suite in use since the 1980s.

A long overdue overhaul it seems as things hot up with Chinese and Russian platforms.Thats if the airframes dont fall apart first..Im wondering if this is more in line with updating older platforms to gen 5 and 6 tech?

F15,s upgrade
