Boeing last week briefed UK defence contractors on opportunities to partiÂcipate in its Project Eagle bid to upgrade the UK Royal Air Forceâ€™s seven E-3D Sentry Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) aircraft. The modernisation will make the Sentry a hub for network-enabled operations.
The US manufacturer revealed details of its proposal in London as it and competitor Lockheed Martin finalise Â£4.5 million ($8.29 million) contracts with the UK Ministry of Defence to perform laboratory demonstrations of their mission systems. The Project Eagle mid-life upgrade plans call for a technical demonstration phase to run until June 2007 in a bid to reduce risk.
