CAPES program to update USAF F-16s with new capabilities

Around 300 F-16s from the U.S. Air Force will undergo a combat avionics programmed extension suite (CAPES) upgrade to install new AESA radar, ALQ-213, an integrated broadcast system (IBS) and a center display unit (CDU).

A simultaneous structural service life extension program (SLEP) will increase the structural life to between 10,000hrs and 12,000hrs.
