The US Navy has selected Boeing to jointly develop a new Type 4 Advanced Mission Computer (AMC) system for the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet and EA-18G Growler.

The Type 4 AMC system will offer improved aircraft performance and image and mission-processing functions, and is scheduled to replace the existing Type 3 AMC.

Boeing F/A-18 and EA-18G Mission Systems director Kevin Fogarty said that the new system will better position the war-fighters for future Navy Flightplan capability upgrades.

Flightplan is the navy’s technology insertion plan to ensure the modernisation of the aircraft ahead of future threats.
