(U) A. Mission Description and Budget Item Justification

This program is in budget activity 7 - Operational System Development, Research Category 6.6 because The F-15E is the most versatile fighter in the world today. Configured with conformal fuel tanks (CFTs), the F-15E can deploy worldwide with minimal tanker support and arrive combat-ready. The F-15E retains air superiority capability and adds systems, such as Low Altitude Navigation Targeting Infrared for Night (LANTIRN), to meet the requirement for all-weather, deep penetration, and night/under-the-weather, air-to-surface attack. However, the threat includes a new generation of aircraft possessing all-weather detection and kill capabilities. The F-15E's avionics, armament, airframe, and engines must be improved to maintain its superiority against the threat into the next century. Avionics updates, exploiting proven technological advances, are being incorporated into the F-15E providing expanded capability and supporting an updated and fully integrated electronic warfare suite. As a result, this project develops enhanced offensive and defensive capability and survivability.

(The F-15E PE also funds RDT&E activities for PE # 0207130, F-15A-D). The F-15E, which received contract award approval in FY84, is an operational aircraft and therefore the development activities in the PE are included in Budget Activity 7, Operational Systems Development.
