This F-15E Fighter Aircraft Upgrade Will Confuse The Enemy Radar
Boeing to install high-tech radar systems on US Air Force F-15E Eagle fighter jets. The American Aerospace company Boeing will be modifying dozens of F-15 aircraft by integrating a cutting-edge radar and electronic warfare system.
This new radar system is called Eagle Passive Active Warning and Survivability System (EPAWSS). It will help the F-15 pilots with advanced capabilities to detect and counter air and ground enemy threats.
According to Boeing, the EPAWSS will help to improve the aircraft’s battlefield situational awareness. Prat Kumar who is a Boeing official said that this new system will enhance the mission effectiveness and survivability of the F-15s in contested environments. It will strengthen the ability to penetrate advanced enemy air defenses and also will improve mission flexibility.
Air Force Base officer Col. Matthew Schorr said that even if the F-15 was made in 1970s, the EPAWSS will bring all new processing capabilities to the F-15. It can do more than detect threats. It can also scramble enemy radar signals to make sure that the F-15 fly unnoticed by enemies.
Langley Air Force Base officer Col. Matthew Schorr said,
“It confuses the enemy radar, and it provides (pilots) a little bit more cover, The theory is that, by scrambling that electronic signature, it allows the F-15 to operate a little bit closer to where the threat might be.”
