Raytheon to upgrade USAF’s AOC WS

2nd May 2017 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Raytheon has received a contract from the US Air Force (USAF) to sustain and modernise its Air and Space Operations Centre Weapon System (AOC WS), the company announced on 26 April. The six-year contract has an initial value of up to $375 million.

The existing AOC WS baseline software will be updated and new software upgrades will be developed and deployed to enhance air and space command and control operations.

AOC provides a strategic capability for the USAF to command and control aircraft through all of the USAF's critical missions. The system is operated from 22 locations around the world.

Todd Probert, vice president of mission support and modernization at Raytheon IIS, said: 'Raytheon's innovative modernization through sustainment approach incrementally improves systems without interruption to critical missions. In addition, the use of software development best practices, such as Agile and DevOps, speeds up the delivery of these systems to the warfighter.'
