EL SEGUNDO, CALIFORNIA (BNS): Raytheon has been awarded its second contract from Boeing Company for low-rate initial production (LRIP) of active electronically scanned array radar systems for the US Air Force F-15E Radar Modernisation Programme.

Raytheon's APG-82(V)1 AESA radar can simultaneously detect, identify and track multiple air and surface targets at longer ranges than the APG-70 radar it replaces.

The system offers a substantial improvement in reliability and reduces Air Force maintenance costs, according to the Company.

Raytheon is scheduled to begin delivery of the LRIP-2 radar systems in February 2014. Final delivery of the initial LRIP lot of six APG-82(V)1 radars is scheduled to be completed by that date.
