November 11, 2002 by Jeff Shepard

Signal Technology Corp. (Danvers, MA) announced the receipt of a development contract for a multi-output, high-density, ruggedized power supply for the F-15 aircraft's radar warning receiver (RWR). The award is valued in excess of $600,000, with additional production options that could exceed $8.0 million.

The F-15 RWR detects a broad range of incoming radar signals, identifies and characterizes the probable source as a specific friend or threat, and alerts the aircrew. The upgrade program's principal requirement is to improve the reliability, maintainability and supportability of the currently fielded F-15 RWR power supply inventory. The program is also intended to minimize maintenance costs and reduce mission downtime.
