F-15’s new advanced high-speed mission computer makes first flight

An F-15E Strike Eagle lands at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., July 8, 2016, after a mission in which Boeing’s F-15 mission systems recorded its first flight with the Advanced Display Core Processor II. The advanced mission computer, based on commercial technology, provides multi-core processing capabilities propelling the F-15 to the forefront of fighter embedded computing systems.

Boeing’s F-15 mission systems recorded its first flight with the Advanced Display Core Processor II at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., July 8. 2016.
The flight was recorded aboard an F-15E Strike Eagle and lasted two hours and 53 minutes.

“ADCP II brings next generation high-speed computing to the F-15 enterprise,” said Lt. Col. Michael Casey, the chief of the F-15 avionics branch at the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center here. “This capability allows pilots to prosecute targets with ironclad precision and sets the foundation for future growth.”

The advanced mission computer, based on commercial technology, provides multi-core processing capabilities propelling the F-15 to the forefront of fighter embedded computing systems. The ADCP II high-speed processing and interface designs enable advanced systems integration, increased mission effectiveness, augmented fault-tolerance, enhanced system stability and aircrew survivability.

The ADCP II is pivotal to F-15 upgrades enabling air superiority. It provides critical mission processing capacity for new advanced capabilities such as the Eagle Passive/Active Warning Survivability System, long-range infrared search and track capability, high-speed radar communications, and future software suite upgrades.

“This new era of computing is a game changer inside the cockpit,” said Jason Brandstetter, Boeing’s ADCP II program manager. “F-15 aircrews can have confidence their mission software is executing on a premier embedded computer system with designed-in stability verified through thousands of hours of robust scenario-based testing.”
