The first Peace-Eye 737 Airborne early Warning & Control (AEW&C) aircraft was delivered today to the Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF). The aircraft landed at the ROKAF Base Gimhae, the main operating base for the aircraft. Boeing is expected to deliver three additional aircraft, supported by extensive infrastructure including mission crew training, mission support and system maintenance. The platform is based on the Boeing Next-Generation 737-700 commercial airplane.
The Peace-Eye is designed to provide airborne battle-management capability utilizing situational picture generated by the on-board advanced multirole electronically scanned radar that tracks airborne and maritime targets simultaneously, supporting interrogator friend/foe (IFF) and electronic support measures (ESM). All the system’s electronic racks and 10 mission crew consoles are accommodated in the cabin. 737 AEW&C aircraft also are in production for the governments of Australia and Turkey.
