Boeing received a $91.3M contract from the US Air Force to manufacture high-speed computing systems designed to process mission data on F-15 jets.

The company will produce and integrate Advanced Display Core Processor II boxes into the fighter aircraft, the Department of Defense said Monday.

DoD noted the modification represents an option under a previously awarded ADCPII Low-Rate Initial Production 3 contract and runs through December 28th, 2021.

Work will take place in St. Louis and the US military service will obligate the full amount of the modification from its fiscal 2018 and 2019 procurement funds.

The US Air Force initially awarded a potential $317.4M contract in September 2018 for F-15 mission computer production and integration services.

An F-15E aircraft equipped with the ADCPII technology completed its first flight in 2016 at Eglin AF Base in Florida.

I don’t think that will happen as this system is run on a pentium chip the most highly tested and best regarded chip from the 1990’s.

I hear they are putting new sensors in F16 to keep it in service until 2040.
