USAF orders advanced AESA radar for F-15EX
Work on the $3.12 billion IDIQ Eagle Vision deal from the F-15 Division Contracts Branch will be completed by June 2026.
‘This contract currently does not have any delivery orders for Foreign Military Sales (FMS) but does allow for future FMS orders and is the result of a sole-source acquisition,’ the DoD noted on 9 June.
According to Shephard Defence Insight, in addition to its extended range and improved multi-target track and precision engagement capabilities, the AESA radar offers a more than 20-fold improvement in system reliability over the legacy F-15E APG-70 radar.

Enhancing electronic support to achieve spectrum dominance within multi-domain operations (sponsored)
Activity in the Electro-Magnetic Environment (EME) is increasingly focused towards supporting digital sources. The rise of wide area networking, mobile communications and automation across civilian and defence applications, means key sections of the spectrum are highly congested and, from a military perspective, increasingly contested. This growth is likely to be sustained through the proliferation of devices exploiting digitally enabled functionality through automation, internet of things and space-based data services.
