More ALR-69A radar receivers for KC-46A
Raytheon will supply 111 ALR-69A systems, including spares, for installation on the US Air Force's KC-46 Pegasus tanker, the company announced on 24 September.
Under a contract with Boeing, the company will deliver the radar warning receivers by 2025.
The ALR-69A is an all-digital radar warning receiver designed to alert tanker aircrew to imminent airborne threats and allowing them to take evasive action.
Stefan Baur, vice president of Raytheon Electronic Warfare Systems, said: ‘Today tankers fly closer to the fight than ever before. The all-digital ALR-69A receiver warns pilots faster and across greater distances so they can get their job done and return home safely.’
To date, 50 ALR-69A systems for the KC-46 have been delivered to Boeing.
