Raytheon to Supply Next Batch of Radar Warning Receivers to USAF

Raytheon is providing 111 radar warning receivers (ALR-69A systems) for the U.S. Air Force's newest tanker, the KC-46 Pegasus. Under the contract, Raytheon along with Boeing will complete all deliveries by 2025.

ALR-69A is the world's first all-digital radar warning receiver. It alerts tanker air-crews to imminent airborne threats and allows them to take evasive action. To date, 50 ALR-69A systems for the KC-46 have been delivered to Boeing. The all-digital ALR-69A receiver warns pilots faster and across greater distances, so they can get their job done and return home safely.

In 2018, the U.S. Air Force awarded Raytheon an IDIQ (Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity) to outfit their fleet of tactical air and large body aircraft with ALR-69A. Since that award, ALR-69A has gone through significant enhancements, including frequency extensions that detect and identify threats across the spectrum. It is also installed on the U.S. Air Force C-130H and is currently being tested on the F-16.
