Boeing has nabbed a contract valued $189.3 million for repairs and support equipment of the F-15's Eagle Passive Active Warning and Survivability System (EPAWSS).
This contract modification adds government furnished property repair as well as acquisition of Group A and B kits, support equipment, mod line standup, technical orders and interim contractor support efforts for the low-rate initial production (LRIP) of the EPAWSS systems which will be installed on existing F-15 aircraft.
Work expected to be completed December 31, 2026.
Eagle Passive Active Warning and Survivability System
The EPAWSS provides the U.S. Air Force F-15 fleet with advanced electronic warfare technology. It is an integrated digital avionics system designed to protect the F-15E Eagle against enemy air defense systems. It offers fully integrated radar warning, geo-location, situational awareness, and self-protection solutions to detect and defeat surface and airborne threats. Equipped with advanced electronic countermeasures, it enables deeper penetration against modern integrated air defense systems, providing rapid response capabilities to protect the aircrew.
The EPAWSS defends against RF and IR threat systems detecting or acquiring accurate targeting information prior to threat engagement thus complicating and/or negating an enemy threat targeting solution. The system counters threats through its suite of components with electro optical and RF techniques.
