CMC Electronics and Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems signed a 12-year agreement for the supply of more than 35,000 hybrid microcircuits for active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar systems in the F-18E/F and F-15E. The radar provides targeting and tracking capabilities in the airplanes, flown by the U.S. Navy, Air Force and Air National Guard. Boeing most recently selected the AESA technology for the Air Force’s F-15E Strike Eagle. The program covers radar development and production, maintenance, test equipment and spares for the entire F-15E fleet, expected to include 224 airplanes. Raytheon has named CMC a preferred supplier and sole source for hybrid microcircuits.
