The QF-16 mission profile included auto takeoff, a series of simulated maneuvers, supersonic flight and an auto land all without a pilot in the cockpit.Play Movie
During “Combat Archer” the 82nd Aerial Targets Squadron uses the unmanned QF-16 as a target for live-fire tests over the Gulf of Mexico.
The QF-16 is based on the F-16A and F-16C, the single-seat versions of the U.S. Air Force’s single-engine supersonic, multi-role tactical aircraft.
Boeing receives the F-16 as it was delivered to the U.S. Air Force, and installs a number of systems on the aircraft to make it unmanned.
The Growler's unique airborne electronic attack capabilities make it one of the first aircraft into the fight, as it suppresses ground defenses for other strikes.
The Growler provides selective, reactive and
pre-emptive jamming capabilities, some of which are housed in the gun bay and in two wingtip pods.
With its Advanced Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar, digital data links and air-to-air missiles, the Growler has self-protection capability and is effective for target identification and prosecution.
The F-15's two 29,000 pound-thrust engines push it to two and a half times the speed of sound, making it the eighth fastest aircraft ever built.
The F-15 has evolved into arguably the most advanced, multirole, air-superiority fighter currently in service.
The F-15 can carry up to 29,500 pounds of payload, including air-to-ground weapons and air-to-air weapons.
Boeing equipped the F-15 with an advanced infrared targeting and navigation system, which allows high-speed target strikes at night and in bad weather.
The Super Hornet has 11 weapons stations, which allows the aircraft to carry more than 400 configurations of air-to-air and air-to-ground ordinance.
Boeing provides on-site maintenance and support ensuring F/A-18 fleets (both Classic Hornets and
Super Hornets) are mission ready.
The F/A-18 Super Hornet is a twin-engine, supersonic, all weather multirole fighter jet that is capable of landing and taking off from an aircraft carrier. Every Super Hornet has been delivered on cost and on schedule.
Two F414-GE-400 engines power the Super Hornet, producing a combined 44,000 pounds of thrust and a Mach 1.8 top speed.
Known as the Warthog, the A-10 Thunderbolt II is a twin-engine aircraft that provides close-air support of ground forces and employs a wide variety of conventional munitions.
In 2007 and based upon expertise with Fighter / Attack aircraft, Boeing was selected to replace 173 wing sets on the Warthog.
Using 3-D modeling, Boeing provided the baseline engineering foundation for the A-10 Wing Replacement program and was recognized by Aviation Week for its innovative approach.
The A-10 provides close-air support through its mix of weaponry, including a Gatling 30 mm Avenger rotary cannon and up to 16,000 pounds of ordinance.
To replace wings on the A-10, Boeing used an innovative approach to interpret and de-conflict legacy designs. In early 2015, Boeing delivered the 100th wing set.
Boeing teamed with Lockheed Martin to develop and build the F-22, an extremely advanced tactical fighter that combined stealth, integrated avionics and maneuverability. Boeing built the wings and aft fuselage, including the structures necessary for engine and nozzle installations and development of the auxiliary power units.
On the F-22, Boeing was responsible for the avionics integration, seventy percent of the mission software as well as the life support and fire protection systems. Also, Boeing has prime responsibility for radar system and power supplies development, production, and testing.
Training on the F-22 simulator now includes Boeings Constant Resolution Visual System, or CRVS — a high resolution, immersive training environment. The standard CRVS provides constant 20/40 visual acuity over the entire 360-degree field of view.Read More
To make training more relevant to modern day fighters, Boeing upgraded 466 of the advanced-jet training aircraft with a modernized cockpit, featuring a head-up display, up-front control panels, multifunctional displays, hands-on throttle and stick, and integrated global positioning system.
Boeing continues its modernization of the avionics systems in providing a new Mission Display Processor (MDP), new electronics for the head-up display, new VHF radios, a new surveillance capability called
ADS-B Out, and further capability block upgrades.
Boeing provides flight simulators called Aircrew Training Devices (ATDs), courseware revisions, field service representatives, and Performance Based Logistics (PBL) to repair the avionics equipment.
Boeing provides high fidelity F-16 simulators with
360-degree visual systems, instructor/operator stations and brief/debrief stations as individual device solutions or through the Mission Training Centers which are linked to the Distributed Mission Operation Network.
Boeings F-16 Weapons Tactics Trainer (WTT), Desktop Tactics Trainer (DTT) and Full Mission Trainer (FMT) provide affordable, realistic, high-fidelity training to maximize F-16 pilot readiness.
Boeing provides Joint Helmet-Mounted Cueing Systems for the F-16, increasing the pilots situational awareness and battle effectiveness.
