BAE Systems has won a $49.5 million contract action for the upgrade of the Korean F-16C/D legacy radar warning receiver to a new configuration.
Work is expected to be completed by July 31, 2020, the US Department of Defense said in a statement Monday.
This contract involves foreign military sales (FMS) to Korea and is the result of a sole-source acquisition. ASPJ is a type of internal electronic countermeasures equipment that has been integrated into the F-16. ASPJ is a state-of-the-art internal electronic countermeasures system used to defeat or degrade tracking by threat radar systems.
These aircraft also have the ALR-56M radar warning receiver and the ALE-47 chaff/flare dispenser.
In December 2013 the Korean government signed a contract with BAE to upgrade 134 of its F-16 fighters. This update will see the oldest airframes being equiped with the latest Modular Mission Computer and associated equipment, bringing them back to par with the last Peace Bridge III ordered F-16s. Moreover it was also decided to replace existing AN/APG-68(V) radars with the Raytheon RACR Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar as well.
BAE Systems today unveiled the latest version of its flagship Mine Counter Measures (MCM) system, at the Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) exhibition. BAE Systems Naval Autonomy Tactical Information System (NAUTIS) 5 is used to counter the ever-present threat of naval mines
BAE Systems has launched a £30 million programme to determine the military utility of Laser Directed Energy Weapons (LDEWs) and to study integration on to UK military aircraft, ships and land vehicles. With UK and allied military personnel facing evolving threats around the globe there is an emerging need for a new type of highly-precise, targeted and agile weapon system
BAE Systems has introduced a new wearable technology dubbed ‘Broadsword Spine – an invisible power and data network that is built directly into clothing using conductive fabrics instead of wires and cables. The new technology allows vital electronic devices to be plugged straight into a vest, jacket or belt, with custom-built connectors hooking directly into power and data sources via USB
BAE Systems has developed a low cost, lightweight, flexible cockpit solution that can block dangerous laser light, protecting pilots and flight crew from hostile attacks. Using a novel approach, the technique is selective in the way it prevents laser transmission, meaning a high level of natural light can still pass through the canopy with minimal colour distortion
BAE Systems has unveiled Single and double-tracked Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) to carry out reconnaissance, combat and casualty evacuation roles. Ironclad is small enough to negotiate tight urban environments, but maintains the mobility needed to handle extreme cross-country terrain, the company said in a statement Tuesday
BAE Systems has won $64 million contract for the design, development, manufacture, and sustainment of the Bomber Armament Tester (BAT) System for the Air Force bomber fleet. This contract provides for engineering and manufacturing development of 90 BAT systems capable of being utilized on the B-2A, B1-B, and B-52H weapon systems, US Department of Defense said in a statement Wednesday
