Raytheon fires up EW for Australia

4th May 2017 - 10:52 GMT | by Gordon Arthur in Hong Kong


Fresh from a successful test demonstrating a single-ship geolocation capability, Raytheon is promoting its upgraded AN/ALR-69A(V) aircraft radar warning receiver (RWR) to export markets such as Australia.

In addition, Raytheon is marketing a product to support electronic warfare planning and management.

Paul Overstreet, Raytheon's ALR-69A programme manager, told Shephard, 'There is broad interest in ALR-69A given its capability against advanced threats. Because of its capabilities, the ALR-69A is a key portion of the defensive systems aboard the new Japanese KC-46A.'

Overstreet also noted that the ALR-69A is 'on the current upgrade roadmap for the USAF C-130 and C-17 fleets'.
