BAE Systems receives contract to sustain F-22 digital EWS

Lockheed Martin has signed a five-year contract with BAE Systems to sustain the AN/ALR-94 digital electronic warfare system for the F-22 Raptor.

BAE Systems will continue to manage repairs and upgrades, logistics, test equipment maintenance, and provide spares and engineering support to maintain the system’s readiness and relevancy for air dominance missions. BAE Systems has been managing the AN/ALR-94 system since its inception and will collaborate with Lockheed Martin and the US Air Force to provide innovative and cost-effective mission system support for the F-22.

“At BAE Systems, we are committed to delivering mission-critical capability to the warfighter when they need it most,” said Dan Harrington, director of F-22 Programs at BAE Systems. “We’re investing in sustainment excellence to keep Raptors and other platforms ready to engage modern threats and outpace our adversaries.”

BAE Systems has invested in a new repair facility in Merrimack, New Hampshire, to provide agile and cost-effective support.

The F-22 Raptor is a fifth-generation aircraft with unique features such as situational awareness, low observability, speed, agility, and lethality. The AN/ALR-94 system protects the Raptor with integrated radar warning, targeting support, and countermeasures, enabling mission success in signal-dense and contested environments.
