Using Calibration to Optimize Performance in Crucial Measurements
South Korea has selected BAE Systems North America's Threat Warning and Defensive Systems business unit (Yonkers, NY) to supply it with 42 AN/ALR-56C(V)1 radar warning receivers (RWR) for use on the country's F-15K combat aircraft.
Specifically configured for the F-15K, the ALR-56C(V)1 deal is valued at approximately US$58 M and the equipment is noted as forming part of the platform's integrated Tactical Electronic Warfare Suite (TEWS).
Here, the RWR is partnered by BAE Systems' AN/ALE-47 countermeasures dispensing system and the Northrop Grumman AN/ALQ-135 radar jammer.
The F-15K is scheduled to make its maiden flight during April 2005, with ALR-56C(V)1 deliveries slated for completion by the end of 2007.
