NASHUA, NEW HAMPSHIRE (BNS): BAE Systems was awarded a $367 million contract to deliver 70 Digital Electronic Warfare Systems (DEWS)/Common Missile Warning Systems (CMWS) to upgrade F-15S fighter jets in support of the Royal Saudi Air Force.

"Through these efforts the Kingdom's existing F-15 fighter aircraft will match the capabilities of the next generation of F-15 SA fighter jets currently in development," John Nyilis, product line director at BAE Systems, said a company statement.

DEWS is a state-of-the-art integrated digital electronic warfare system which provides advanced radar warning and countermeasure capabilities to legacy and new platforms.

The system protects aircraft by providing situational awareness, offensive targeting support, and self-protection.

BAE Systems will deliver the DEWS/CMWS system to Warner Robins Air Logistics Center in Georgia under a Foreign Military Sale to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The work is scheduled to be completed by November 2018.
