Four wings of the U.S. Air Force are combining efforts to analyze, develop and test a new advanced medium-range air-to-missile data collection system for the first F-22A Raptor at Tyndall Air Force Base, Fla. The 53rd Wing, 46th Test Wing, 1st Fighter Wing and 325th Fighter Wing have worked side by side to solve the weapons system evaluation program’s critical data collection issue in less than three months. Early in the F-22 program, engineers were concerned with the transmission of telemetry signals from the advanced medium-range air-to-air missile to the ground receiving site while the missile is still in the by due to the stealth capabilities of the jet. Due to the Raptor’s internal AIM-120C missile stations, the 83rd Fighter Weapons Squadron WSEP evaluators were missing critical missile cueing data. Originally, the proposed modification plan was to cost $350 million, according to officials. An alternate plan called for only some of the Raptors to be modified, which meant they would not be tested at the 83rd Fighter Weapons Squadron.
