|U.S. Air Force selects Raytheon F-16 mission computer|
"The new mission computer is a game changer for the F-16," said
Raytheon's MMCU provides the USAF with the best value and confidence to meet requirements. For more than 25 years, Raytheon has been the leading provider of mission-processing technologies for domestic and international F-16 aircraft.
Based on commercial technology, Raytheon's MMCU combines multi-core processing and cyber security with next generation high-speed computing and high-speed data networks. It serves as the foundation for potential new advanced sensors and capabilities for the USAF F-16, including next generation weapon systems.
"The F-16 remains the backbone of the global allied fighting force, and the mission computer will deliver capabilities to combat emerging threats alongside fifth-generation fighters well into the future," said
The F-16 Fighting Falcon is the world's premier fixed-wing, single-engine, fourth-generation multi-mission fighter, and the MMCU is fundamental to increasing its combat capabilities.
