Boeing has received a $5.2 million contract modification from the USAF Life Cycle Management Command for the F-15C’s Raytheon APG-63(V)3 Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) Radar Improvement Program. The modest contract modification green lights the installation of kits into 46 aircraft that will be completed by June 2021.
Boeing was awarded a contract in 2015 for integration of 17 AN/APG-63(v)3 radars worth $281.7 million. A further $558.46 million contract modification came in November 2016 for 42 F-15Cs and in March 2017 tan additional 18 jets were added. The latest deal brings total F-15C upgrades to 123 on contract from an expected total of 179 aircraft.
