Boeing awarded USAF F-15 radar contract
Boeing has announced that it received a Performance-Based Logistics (PBL) contract for continued support of US Air Force (USAF) F-15 mechanically scanned and Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radars. The new PBL contract, worth $85 million, was announced 29 August 2012.
The AESA radar system gives warfighters the ability to detect and track multiple targets in multiple directions while providing jamming functions. The pilot gains greater situational awareness and decreased workload with increased survivability.
According to Boeing, PBL contracts require contractors to meet a set level of readiness, ensuring that the customer's required level of support is met and that the aircraft, system or components are available when needed. This lowers life-cycle costs while increasing mission capability rates.
This contract replaces three previous support contracts with one overarching agreement, and integrates a Boeing Contractor Logistics Support team into the assigned USAF wing.
