As part of a £224m con­tract, BAE Sys­tems is upgrad­ing 70 state-of-the-art Dig­i­tal Elec­tron­ic War­fare Sys­tems (DEWS) / Com­mon Mis­sile Warn­ing Sys­tems (CMWS) onboard F‑15S fight­er jets in sup­port of the Roy­al Sau­di Air Force.

The inte­grat­ed dig­i­tal elec­tron­ic war­fare sys­tem pro­vides fight­er jets with advanced radar warn­ing and coun­ter­mea­sure capa­bil­i­ties, and pro­tects air­craft with improved sit­u­a­tion­al aware­ness, offen­sive tar­get­ing sup­port and self-pro­tec­tion.

John Nyilis, prod­uct line direc­tor at BAE Sys­tems said: “BAE Sys­tems looks for­ward to pro­vid­ing the Roy­al Sau­di Air Force with this supe­ri­or elec­tron­ic capa­bil­i­ty. Our DEWS/CMWS prod­uct can be mod­i­fied for a wide vari­ety of plat­forms, pro­vid­ing our cus­tomers with the abil­i­ty to ensure sys­tem com­mon­al­i­ty. This means the Kingdom’s exist­ing fight­er F‑15 fight­er air­craft will match the capa­bil­i­ties of the next gen­er­a­tion of F‑15 SA fight­er jets cur­rent­ly in devel­op­ment.”

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 will be per­formed in Nashua, N.H., Totowa, N.J., and Austin, Texas and is sched­uled to be com­plet­ed by Novem­ber 2018.
