BAE Systems received a 5-year contract from Lockheed Martin to sustain the AN/ALR-94 advanced digital electronic warfare system for the F-22 Raptor.
Under the contract, the company will continue to manage electronic warfare system repairs and upgrades, supplier logistics and test equipment maintenance, and provide depot-level spares and engineering support to maintain F-22 EW readiness.
BAE Systems works with Lockheed Martin and the U.S. Air Force to deliver innovative, cost-effective electronic warfare mission system support to enable F-22 warfighter execution in contested airspace.
“At BAE Systems, we are committed to delivering mission-critical capability to the warfighter when they need it most,” said Dan Harrington, director of F-22 Programs at BAE Systems. “We’re investing in sustainment excellence to keep Raptors and other platforms ready to engage modern threats and outpace our adversaries.”
BAE Systems is the original manufacturer of the AN/ALR-94 electronic warfare system and has provided lifecycle management of the system since the program’s beginnings. The company also recently invested in a new state-of-the-art F-22 repair facility in Merrimack, New Hampshire.
The F-22 Raptor projects fifth-generation air dominance with long-range situational awareness, and low observability, speed, agility and lethality. The high-performance AN/ALR-94 system protects the Raptor with integrated radar warning, targeting support and countermeasures. The system also helps pilots identify, monitor, analyze and rapidly respond to potential threats.
