USAF Taps Boeing to Provide F-15 EW System Spares for Qatar
F-15QA aircraft

Boeing has secured a $46.9M contract from the U.S. Air Force to provide digital electronic warfare system spares for Qatar's F-15 aircraft.

The company will deliver the equipment under a foreign military sales agreement between USAF and Qatar Emiri Air Force, the Department of Defense said Tuesday.

Work under the sole-source contract will take place in St. Louis, Missouri, through Aug. 23, 2023.

The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center issued the contract and financed the initial work via $22.9M in FMS funds.

In November, Boeing received a $657.2M USAF contract modification that provides for sustainment of Qatar's F-15 fighter jet. The company will work at Al-Udeid Air Base in support of an F-15QA sparing program and will handle aircraft training equipment logistics under the potential $8.04B contract.
