According to the US military study, “The Boeing E-7 is the only platform capable of meeting the requirements for the Defense Department’s tactical battle management, command and control and moving target indication capabilities within the timeframe needed to replace the aging E-3” The assignment of the contract is expected to take place in 2023.

Funding for research, development, testing, and evaluation (RDT & E) is included in the US President’s budget request for FY23, with the $227 million requirements for the first prototype aircraft to be fully covered to fly in 2027.
