Korea Selects BAE Systems RWR
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.
