Subject: Boeing Offering AESA with F-18 For India
Softwar    2/19/2008 8:48:47 AM Boeing offers F-18 fighter jet with radar technology Signaling a paradigm shift, US aerospace major Boeing yesterday said it would transfer technology for a cutting edge technology radar of its F-18 Super Hornet fighter, which is vying for an Indian Air Force (IAF) order for 126 multi-role combat aircraft. A year ago, the Boeing had flatly ruled out transferring technology for the active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar that enables the F-18 seamlessly shift into an AWACS (airborne warning and control system) mode while flying on a combat mission. "I can confirm that we will be complying with all the requirements of the request for proposal (RFP) we have received from the Indian Air Force and that includes technology transfer for the AESA radar," Chris Chadwick, president of Precision Engagement and Mobility Systems of Boeing Integrated Defence Systems, said here.
