Advanced Electronics has won a $57.8 million modification contract for the Royal Saudi Air Force F-15SA Cyber Protection System and Related Facilities program.

This modification provides for the construction of a secure communications facility at the Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF) Headquarters, the US Department of Defense said in a statement Wednesday.

The F-15SA multi-role fighter is a Saudi Advanced variant of the Boeing F-15 Strike Eagle. It has a modern fly-by-wire flight control system in place of the hybrid electronic/mechanical system used by previous F-15s. The variant includes the APG-63(v)3 active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar, digital electronic warfare systems (DEWS), infrared search and track (IRST) systems, and other advanced systems. It also includes a redesigned cockpit originally intended for the F-15SE.The fly-by-wire system will allow the carriage of weapons on the previously unused outer wing weapon stations

Work is expected to be completed by July 31, 2022.
