Boeing to install Honeywell avionics computers aboard Air Force F-15 fighter jets for $7.5 million order
WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB, Ohio – Boeing Co. military avionics experts will integrate the Advanced Display Core Processor (ADCP) II into the avionics of the US Air Force’s F-15 fighter jet as part of an order for 7.5 million announced last month.
Air Force Life Cycle Management Center officials at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, are directing the Boeing Defense, Space & Security segment in St. Louis to run ADCP II production at full speed to install these computers on F-15 aircraft.
Boeing is the primary systems integrator for all versions of the F-15 Eagle fighter aircraft. The ADCP II flight computer is from the Honeywell Inc. Aerospace segment in Phoenix.
The computer is based on commercial technology and offers multi-core processing capabilities. Its high-speed processing and interface designs allow for advanced systems integration, increased mission efficiency, increased fault tolerance, improved system stability and crew survivability, say officials of the Air Force.

The ADCP II is critical to F-15 jet fighter upgrades to enable 1970s aircraft to help maintain American air superiority over the F-15’s projected life cycle through 2040.
The computer provides mission processing for new advanced capabilities such as the Eagle Passive/Active Warning System (EPAWSS), Long Range Infrared Search and Track (IRST) capability, high-speed radar communications and future software suite upgrades.
On this order, Boeing will carry out the work in Saint-Louis; several other continental United States operating sites; and Lakenheath, England, and is expected to be completed by July 2025.
