Boeing has been awarded a $95 million modification contract for USAF F-15 Radar Modernization program (RMP) radar upgrades.

The contract modification provides for the exercise of options for 13 RMP Group A kits, 13 RMP Group B kits, 38 RMP installs, 14 conformal fuel tank installs, and other required support being produced under the basic contract, the US department of defense said in a statement Tuesday.

Work is expected to be completed by April 30, 2020.

Boeing has won a half-a-billion contract to upgrade 71 US Air Force F-15 in December last year.  Boeing will install Raytheon APG-63(V)3 radar on 42 F-15C/D jet fighters, and the Raytheon AN/APG-82 radar systems on 28 F-15E fighter-bombers under terms of the contract.
