The US Air Force announced a tender for the creation of a "smart" electronic warfare system for F-15 Eagle fighters

US F-15 Eagle fighters, including the latest version of the F-15EX Advanced Eagle, will receive a new "smart" electronic warfare system. As reported by "NPlus1" with reference to Flightglobal, the US Air Force announced a tender for the development of the corresponding complex.


The US Air Force Command announced a tender for the supply of technologies and systems to create a "smart" electronic warfare system for F-15 fighters. The new electronic warfare will have to automatically recognize the signals of enemy radar stations, and independently select methods of suppressing them.

Currently, F-15 fighters are equipped with the EPAWSS electronic warfare system from the British company BAE Systems. This system works on the basis of a base of radio signal sources. Upon identification, it automatically selects the suppression method. However, if any signal is not included in the database, then, accordingly, EPAWSS cannot respond.

The new system, as conceived by the US Air Force, should independently analyze the incoming signal, determine the type of source and, in accordance with this, already select the suppression method. It is assumed that neural networks will be used in its creation. Other details, including development timelines, etc. not yet.

Recall that in 2019, the US Air Force decided to resume purchases of the F-15 Eagle fighter in the new F-15EX modification. In 2021, 20 years after the last purchase in 2001, the US Air Force received the first modernized F-15EX. In total, according to an open-ended contract, the US Air Force will receive 144 (according to other sources - 200) of the latest fighters.

      This is the F-15, the most honored fourth generation fighter. What do you think, how is he with the aerobatic x-mi?

    Is it easier to create a "smart electronic warfare system" than finding smart pilots? laughing

      It's easier to announce a tender. And there you just have to start and finish.

    Neural networks ... Will create another masterpiece for 150 million "green papers with dead slave owners."

    They go this way ... it is possible and so, the main thing is the result.

    It’s not a problem what the F-15 Eagle, remains in service for many years, and all the stories about the fact that the F-35 will replace everyone and everything are just fables

    Who? Does the F-15EX have an Advanced Eagle? This is a well-known, but deeply modernized, aircraft. Everything is normal here.
