The Swiss government will upgrade its F/A-18Cs with 14 of Raytheon’s Advanced Targeting Forward-Looking Infrared pods. The acquisition is part of the nation’s sustainment program for 33 F/A-18C/Ds. Deliveries are scheduled to end in early 2011. In addition, cockpit displays and digital storage capacity will be upgraded, along with identification friend-or-foe equipment, to meet civil ATC management requirements.
