WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB, Ohio – Military avionics experts at the Boeing Co. will integrate the Advanced Display Core Processor (ADCP) II aboard versions of the U.S. Air Force F-15 combat jet under terms of a $8.2 million order announced last week.

Officials of the Fighter/Bomber directorate of the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, are asking the Boeing Defense, Space & Security segment in St. Louis to install and repair the environmental control system on the ADCP II boxes onto F-15 aircraft.

Boeing is the prime systems integrator for all versions of the F-15 Eagle combat jet. The ADCP II flight computer comes from the Honeywell Inc. Aerospace segment in Phoenix.

The computer is based on commercial technology and provides multi-core processing capabilities. Its high-speed processing and interface designs enable advanced systems integration, increased mission effectiveness, augmented fault-tolerance, enhanced system stability, and aircrew survivability, Air Force officials say.

The ADCP II is pivotal to F-15 upgrades to enable the 1970s-vintage aircraft to help maintain U.S. air superiority for the F-15's anticipated life cycle through 2040.

The computer provides mission processing for new advanced capabilities in the F-15 jet fighter such as Eagle Passive/Active Warning Survivability System (EPAWSS), long-range infrared search and track capability (IRST), high-speed radar communications, and future software suite upgrades.

On this order Boeing will do the work New Orleans Naval Air Station, La., and should be finished by September 2022. New Orleans NAS is home to the 159th Fighter Wing of the Louisiana Air National Guard, which flies the F-15C single-seat jet fighter.
