Raytheon signs Swiss RWR PBL

2nd August 2016 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Raytheon has signed a five-year contract with RUAG Switzerland to service the ALR-67(V)3 digital radar warning receiver (RWR) for the Swiss government, it announced on 29 July.

The commercial performance-based logistics (PBL) contract aims to maintain the 67(V)3 at nearly 100 percent availability while Swiss forces maintain control of their systems. Under a similar model with the US Navy, Raytheon has improved the mean flight hours between issues by more than 50 percent.

Michael Baladjanian, director at Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems, said: ‘Instead of defining rigid programme requirements, PBLs define performance metric outcomes. It focuses on support versus design and development. Our two key metrics for this PBL are availability and reliability.’

The ALR-67(V)3 alerts F-18 pilots to possibly hostile activities and provides real-time situation awareness.
