BAE Systems has secured a five-year contract from Lockheed Martin to continue maintenance of the AN/ALR-94 advanced digital electronic warfare system used in the U.S. Air Force’s F-22 Raptor fighter aircraft.
The contract covers managing EW system repairs and upgrades, supplier logistics and test equipment maintenance as well as providing depot-level spares and engineering support, BAE said Tuesday.
In 2021, Lockheed received a potential 10-year, $10.9 billion contract to help the Air Force update and maintain the F-22 Raptor jets.
The BAE-developed EW system helps provide F-22 warfighter pilots with enhanced situational awareness and self-protection via its radar warning, targeting support and countermeasure capabilities.
BAE has also invested in building a new repair facility for the aircraft in Merrimack, New Hampshire.
