Design, Integration, and Testing of the F-15 740843
The F-15 is a new generation air superiority fighter built by McDonnell Aircraft Co. for the U.S. Air Force. The aircraft is well along in its contractor development test and evaluation. Air Force development test and evaluation started in the spring of 1974, and operational aircraft will be delivered to the Air Force in the Fall of 1974.
The F-15 represents the first Air Force fighter weapon system with firm contract milestones developed under the U.S. Department of Defense concept of “Fly Before Buy.” This new weapon system has called for new concepts in program management and new approaches to design, integration, and testing to meet its operational and contractural requirements.
