Japanese AWACS fleet to gain ADS-B Out
Boeing is to upgrade transponder hardware and software on the Japan Air Self Defense Force’s (JASDF’s) fleet of four E-767 AWACS aircraft, under a $8.47 million FMS contract modification announced by the DoD on 23 June.
Work includes installation of ADS-B Out hardware and software plus a GPS card.
The ADS-B Out capability will allow the AWACS aircraft to transmit data such as airspeed, altitude, and location to ground stations.
Work will be performed in the US at Oklahoma City and in Japan at Hamamatsu, for completion by 23 December 2023.
The JASDF has operated the E-767 AWACS since the 1990s. The system is a modified version of the USAF E-3 Sentry.
