USAF Receives 1st B-1 Equipped with Boeing Integrated Battle Station
The U.S. Air Force on Jan. 21 received the first B-1 bomber upgraded with the Boeing [NYSE: BA] Integrated Battle Station, which essentially turns the B-1 into a new aircraft with the addition of full color displays, moving maps and a new diagnostics system.
The upgrade, the most extensive modification program in B-1 history, enhances the bomber by giving crews greater situational awareness of what is happening in the battlespace around them, in addition to faster and more secure communication capabilities that improve crews’ ability to engage enemy targets.
