Boeing picks up EPAWSS production contract

15th December 2020 - 11:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team

Low-rate initial production deal comes five years after Boeing was selected as prime contractor.

Boeing will begin low-rate initial production of the F-15 Eagle Passive Active Warning Survivability System (EPAWSS), the US DoD announced on 14 December.

Work on the $79.57 million firm fixed-price contract, awarded by the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, will be performed in San Antonio, Texas, for completion by 31 December 2026. 

The USAF selected Boeing as prime contractor for EPAWSS in October 2015. The programme, which is valued at 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 on the USAF F-15 fleet.
