GOLETA, Calif. Raytheon Company is providing 111 ALR-69A systems, including spares, to outfit the U.S. Air Force's newest tanker, the KC-46 Pegasus. Raytheon will complete radar warning receiver deliveries by 2025 under the contract with Boeing.

ALR-69A, the world's first all-digital radar warning receiver, alerts tanker aircrews to imminent airborne threats and allows them to take evasive action. To date, 50 ALR-69A systems for the KC-46 have been delivered to Boeing.

In 2018, the U.S. Air Force awarded Raytheon an IDIQ to outfit their fleet of tactical air and large body aircraft with ALR-69A. Since that award, ALR-69A has gone through significant enhancements, including frequency extensions that detect and identify threats across the spectrum.

It is also installed on the U.S. Air Force C-130H and is currently being tested on the F-16.
