BAE Systems was selected by Boeing to provide the Digital Electronic Warfare Suite (DEWS) for future international versions of the F-15. Boeing said it will offer the BAE Systems DEWS as an option for any follow-on procurements from current F-15 customers such as Japan and Saudi Arabia, and to new international customers. Boeing predicts the DEWS will provide enhanced performance, reduced logistics requirements and life-cycle cost savings for the customer. During the initial phases of the program, Boeing said BAE Systems will produce DEWS test units and support it to integrate the system into the F-15 weapon platform. The integration activity will take place at Boeing facilities in St. Louis prior to the developmental stage and the initial operational test and evaluation flight programs.
