BAE Systems has received a $4945m contract from the Defense Logistics Agency to provide additional components for digital updates to the US Air Force’s aircraft radar warning receiver system.
The firm say that the award modifies a potential 10-year contract and covers the delivery of high-band receivers and receiver/processors for the ALR-56 RWR technology, the Department of Defense said Thursday.
The contract notice reads:
“BAE Information and Electronic Systems Integration Inc., Totawa, New Jersey, has been awarded a maximum $494,879,892 contract modification (P00015) against a five-year contract (SPE4AX-15-D-9441) with one five-year option period adding two national stock numbers for receiver/processors and high band receivers in support of the ALR-56C Digital Upgrade. This is a fixed-price, cost-reimbursement incentive fee, and cost-reimbursement no fee requirements contract.
Locations of performance are New Hampshire and New Jersey, with a Dec. 27, 2025, performance completion date. Using military service is Air Force. Type of appropriation is fiscal 2019 through 2020 defense working capital funds. The contracting activity is Defense Logistics Agency Land and Maritime, Columbus, Ohio.”
ALR-56C systems, which are installed in USAF’s F-15A/E jets, work by detecting and identifying threat radars of airborne or ground-based weapons. The updated receiver can integrate with jamming, countermeasures and avionics equipment.
Work under the modification will take place in New Hampshire and New Jersey through Dec. 27, 2025. The DLA will obligate fiscal 2019 and 2020 defense working capital funds for the fixed-price and cost-reimbursement modification.
