Boeing obtains EPAWSS modifications

In one modification worth $9.6 million, the manufacturer is procuring two additional Group B shipsets, with work to be completed by 22 October 2022.
This modification brings the total cumulative value of the EPAWSS initial operational testing and evaluation contract to $783.17 million, the DoD announced on 29 March.
Boeing received its first LRIP production contract for EPAWSS in December 2020. The second modification, worth $8.57 million, brings the total cumulative value of this contract to $277.4 million. Boeing will provide EPAWSS Lot One initial spares hardware for the F-15E Strike Eagle.
The USAF selected Boeing as prime contractor for EPAWSS in October 2015. The programme, worth around $4 billion, will upgrade existing EW systems on F-15 aircraft to enhance aircrew protection.
The threat detection system will replace the Tactical Electronic Warfare System (TEWS) on the USAF F-15 fleet.
According to Shephard Defence Insight, TEWS is also used by the air forces of Saudi Arabia, Singapore, and South Korea.
