The GBU-15 modular weapon system (shown) can deliver bombs with pinpoint accuracy via data link control, from low to high altitude, and at a significant standoff distance. The AGM-130 employs a rocket motor for extended range and an altimeter for altitude control. (U.S. Air Force)

The U.S. Air Force awarded Raytheon Co. a $37.9 million delivery order to modify weapons data link equipment used in pilot training for F-15s. This is the second delivery order under a 2007 contract for the USAF Training Frequency Relocation (TFR) program. TFR is the USAF's initiative to modify GBU-15/AGM-130 weapons data link equipment to comply with federal reallocation of radio frequencies from governmental to commercial use. The first delivery order covered nonrecurring engineering work on the program.
