Boeing Upgrading F-15 Mission Software Again
Boeing received a $13.2 million U.S. Air Force contract to develop new F-15 Suite 6 mission planning software under the Mission Planning Enterprise Contract (MPEC) program. The contract provides for mission planning software development and the integration of associated contractor software. Boeing has now received seven MPEC orders totaling more than $165 million, including the F-15 Suite 5 follow-on mission planning software which is scheduled to enter service in March 2007.
Mission planning systems suggest the best plan for an aircraft or weapon to achieve its mission, using a combination of software, hardware and trained mission planners. See Boeing release.
