US AIR FORCE AWARDS CONTRACT TO L3HARRIS FOR B-52 MODERNIZATION

The award is part of the Air Force’s Global Strike Command B-52 Quad Crew Program to consolidate the functions of the electronic warfare officer and navigator into one position. The B-52H is currently operated by a five-person crew that includes two pilots, two navigators and an electronic warfare officer.

“Transforming the iconic B-52 bomber into a more capable platform that operates through 2050 is a priority for our company,” said Ed Zoiss, President, Space and Airborne Systems, L3Harris. “This contract is an important step forward for the nation’s strategic bomber operators and their global strike mission.”

The consolidation of the two crew positions will include moving the control and display unit panels to the navigator station. The joint effort with the customer-led Crew Station Working Group will include a series of analysis – such as aircraft weight and balance, structural and electrical load analysis and thermal cooling – to identify any impact on the B-52 airframe and inform the modification kit design.

L3Harris has been providing critical B-52 technology for decades as the Original Equipment Manufacturer of the AN/ALQ-172 systems for this aircraft fleet. The company continues to help the Air Force evolve its capabilities from analog to digital solutions to defeat the continuously changing threat landscape.
