17 Mar 09. Boeing unveiled a prototype of a new version of its F-15 tactical fighter jet to sell to international customers in the Middle East and Asia Pacific. The new jet, called the F-15 Silent Eagle, is largely designed for foreign governments as a competing plane against Lockheed Martin Corp.’s Joint Strike Fighter, also known as the F-35. Boeing is hoping that its new F-15 will appeal to countries who are
interested in the F-35, but are concerned about its rising costs and lack of flexibility. “The F-15 Silent Eagle is designed to meet our international customers’ anticipated need for cost-effective stealth technologies, as well as for large and diverse weapons payloads,” said Mark Bass, F-15 Program vice president for Boeing, in a statement. The future of Boeing’s St. Louis manufacturing facility, where the F-15 is built, has been uncertain since it lost the Joint Strike Fighter contest to Bethesda, Md.-based Lockheed. The new aircraft includes redesigned conformal fuel tanks that can be converted into internal weapons bay, as well as a digital electronic warfare system made by BAE Systems. The jet will also be able to carry air-to-air missiles and air-to-ground missiles. Boeing will also offer coatings and treatments to improve the stealth of the aircraft. The Chicago-based company plans to hold a flight test of the prototype by the first quarter of 2010. That will include a live missile launch.
18 Mar 09. Raytheon Company will unveil its P25 Network Management Software (NMS), which enables first responders to monitor their P25net digital land mobile radio network for optimal system performance, during the International Wireless Communications Expo at the Las Vegas Convention Center, March 18-20, 2009. The software, incorporated into the company’s P25net, will immediately notify radio system managers of network component failures, allowing them to quickly locate the source of system outages and dispatch key personnel to restore service. “The P25net NMS provides our customers with control of their entire P25 network from a centralized location,” said Bill Iannacci, director of Civil Communications Solutions for Raytheon Network Centric Systems. “Customers can remotely monitor the status of each site and effectively manage maintenance resources to ensure operational continuity.”
