Raytheon Co. (RTN: Quote) said that it has been awarded its second contract from Boeing Co. (BA: Quote) for low-rate initial production or LRIP of active electronically scanned array radar systems for the U.S. Air Force F-15E Radar Modernization Program.
Raytheon's APG-82(V)1 AESA radar can simultaneously detect, identify and track multiple air and surface targets at longer ranges than the APG-70 radar it replaces. The system offers a substantial improvement in reliability and reduces Air Force maintenance costs.
Raytheon is scheduled to begin delivery of the LRIP-2 radar systems in February 2014. Final delivery of the initial LRIP lot of six APG-82(V)1 radars is scheduled to be completed by that date.
