THE BOEING CO. has received a $37.6 million contract to enhance the flight decks of NATO's fleet of 17 E-3 Airborne Warning and Control Systems (AWACS) aircraft to meet European civil air requirements for reduced vertical separation minimum (RVSM). RVSM will allow the E-3s to operate in areas where air traffic control requirements have been reduced to handle increased air traffic. The upgrades are expected to be completed between 2003 and 2005.
