Boeing Awarded US Air Force Contract for F-15 Advanced Display Core Processor II (ADCPII) Support

The Boeing Co., St. Louis, Missouri, has been awarded a $28,470,853 firm-fixed-price, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract modification to previously awarded contract for F-15 Advanced Display Core Processor II (ADCPII) interim contractor support. This contract action provides for support of the integration of ADCPII systems into the F-15 platform. Work is expected to be completed by April 30, 2023. Fiscal 2020 procurement funds in the amount of $20,981,460; and fiscal 2022 procurement funds in the amount of $7,489,393 are being obligated at the time of award. Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, is the contracting activity.

The Advanced Display Core Processor II is pivotal to F-15 upgrades to enable the 1970s-vintage aircraft to help maintain U.S. air superiority for the F-15’s anticipated life cycle through 2040. Boeing will oversee production and integration of the ADCP II boxes and related equipment into the F-15 aircraft. The computer is based on commercial technology and provides multi-core processing capabilities. Its high-speed processing and interface designs enable advanced systems integration, increased mission effectiveness, augmented fault-tolerance, enhanced system stability, and aircrew survivability.

Arguably, the fastest fighter jet computer in the world is in a U.S. Air Force F-15E. It’s the Advanced Display Core Processor II (ADCPII) and it’s capable of processing 87 billion instructions per second of computing throughput- translating into faster and more reliable mission processing capability for aircrew. The computer provides mission processing for new advanced capabilities such as Eagle Passive/Active Warning Survivability System (EPAWSS), long-range infrared search and track capability (IRST), high-speed radar communications, and future software suite upgrades.

The increased processing capability is critical to new advanced capabilities such as Eagle Passive/Active Warning Survivability System (EPAWSS), long range infrared search and track capability (IRST), high speed radar communications and future software suite upgrades. The Advanced Display Core Processor II brings next generation high-speed computing to the F-15. This capability allows pilots to prosecute targets with ironclad precision and sets the foundation for future growth. The ADCPII computer is based on commercial technology and provides multi-core high-speed processing for advanced systems integration and fault tolerance.
