In August 2012, BAE Systems received an award from South Korea's Defense Acquisition and Procurement Agency for a multiyear project to upgrade 134 Korean Air Force F-16 (KF16) fighters. The upgrade included obsolescence management for the computers and operating systems for near real-time tactical data and voice information and including the Core operational flight programs: Advanced Mission Computer (AMC), Upgraded Central Interface Unit (UCIU), Cockpit Display Generator (CDG) and the Center Pedestal Display (CDP). BAE Systems employed TSRI for their modernization services to modernize and document the Jovial source code to C++.
The L-159 Advanced Light Weight Combat Aircraft (ALCA) is based on the proven airframe design and aerodynamic configuration of the L39 Albatross and L59 family of basic and advanced jet trainers. ALCA incorporates a high-performance military turbofan engine, advanced avionics and sensors. TSRI was asked to assist The Boeing Company in modernizing the ALCA Integrated Tactical Avionics Program (ITAP). ITAP, originally a real-time embedded J73 JOVIAL program, required transformation to modern C++.
The MILSATCOM Program Office under the Command and Control System Consolidation (CCS-C) program required replacement of the Air Force Satellite Control Network Command and Control Segment (SCNCCS). This J73 JOVIAL system was modernized to provide satellite control capabilities in support of the Air Force Space Command MILSATCOM satellite programs, including MILSTAR, DSCS III, NATO IV, SKYNET 4, Advanced Wideband Gapfiller, and Advanced EHF.
The Ballistic Missile Early Warning System (BMEWS) radar system provides intercontinental and sea-launched ballistic missile detection, early warning and attack assessment capabilities. These early warning radar systems were being upgraded to improve target detection and mid-course target tracking for the hit-to-kill Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle (KEV) of the Missile Defense Agency's (MDA) ballistic missile defense (BMD).
