PARIS, 19 June 2011. Aircraft designers at the Boeing Co. in Seattle needed digital electronic warfare and anti-jam satellite navigation systems for the KC-46 aerial refueling tanker -- a flying gas station based on the Boeing 767 passenger jetliner. They found their solution from the Raytheon Co. Space and Airborne Systems segment in El Segundo, Calif.


Boeing Awarded a contract to Raytheon (NYSE:RTN) to supply ALR-69A digital radar warning receivers and digital anti-jam receiver global positioning systems for Boeing's latest airborne tanker.

The ALR-69A will enhance the KC-46's situational awareness and survivability by identifying hostile radar signals, while the digital anti-jam receiver global positioning system provides reliable GPS navigation and guidance even in the presence of enemy jamming.

Raytheon made the contract announcement this morning at the Paris Air Show in Le Bourget, France, which opens Monday for four days of trade business, and next weekend for the general public. No financial details of the contract were released.
