Qatar is the only export customer with the most advanced derivative of F-15 ever produced also known as F-15QA. The F-15QA variant comes with all the bells and whistle manufactured by Boeing, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon and Israeli Elbit Systems.

Elbit’s Immune Satellite Navigation System ensures uninterrupted GPS operation, providing full jamming immunity for multiple satellite channels and can handle multiple interfering signals, the company said in a statement issued in Tel Aviv.

Lauren Gramlich, director for international F-15 programs at Boeing, said Elbit’s system, “will meet the demanding operational requirements of this valued customer, and demonstrates Boeing’s commitment to partner with Israeli industry to advance the capabilities of the F-15 platform.”

Defense electronics specialist Elbit already has technologies in use on the F-15 and F-15EX, including a digital helmet mounted cueing system, low-profile head up display and large area cockpit display.

Boeing’s F-15QA, the most advanced version of the F-15 Eagle, made its first flight on April 14, 2020.

The F-15QA multirole fighter is the first of 36 aircraft developed specifically for Qatar.
