Falcon Division

Falcon Division operates on F16 spare and repair support. Our longstanding relationships with Project Falcon afford us a unique opportunity to meet a full range of challenges for F 16’s programs.

Also provides the customized solution to Project Falcon. National Enterprise’s Falcon Division, caters all the requirements of F 16. Our experts and OEMs ensure that they remain ready to serve Pakistan Air force Project Falcon at all time on all the below mentioned projects.

We hold a view that the procurement cycle of Project Falcon is directly proportional to speed of aircraft. Meaning by, a prompt response with correct details. We ensure to provide with quality on time with optimum cost. Our leadership and OEMs allow us to offer unprecedented worldwide reach, support and capability. Here is the description of F 16 Blocks being operated by Project Falcon. Some of the programs on F 16 are also listed. Our Falcon Division Team is trained to handle all these programs through our Principals:

Major Program Upgrades

F-16 MSIP in 1980, General Dynamics, USAF and the EPG partners initiated a long-term Multinational Staged Improvement Program (MSIP) to evolve new capabilities for the F-16. This include Structural and wiring provisions for:

  • Wide-field-of-view raster head-up display (HUD)
  • Multi-function displays
  • Advanced fire control computer
  • Central weapons interface unit
  • Integrated Communications/Navigation/Identification (CNI) system
  • Beyond-visual-range (BVR) air-to-air missiles
  • Electro-optical and target acquisition pods
  • Internal electronic countermeasures (ECM) systems
  • Increased-capacity environmental control and electrical power systems

F-16A/B Block 15 OCU     In 1988, all Block 15 F-16A/B were delivered with an Operational Capability Upgrade (OCU). These aircraft incorporate:

  • Wide-angle HUD that was first introduced on the F-16C/D Block 25,
  • Reliable F100-PW-220 turbofans
  • Updated defensive systems
  • Ability to fire the AIM-120 AMRAAM
  • AGM-65 Maverick air-to-ground missile
  • AGM-119 Penguin Mk.3 anti-shipping missile

F-16 MLU     Mid-Life Update package was designed to upgrade it to the equivalent to Block 50:

  • Cockpit and avionics
  • Add the ability to employ radar-guided air-to-air missiles
  • Enhance the operational performance and improve the reliability, supportability and maintainability of the aircraft.

Falcon UP   The anticipated average service life of the F-16A/B had fallen to 5500 flying hours. In the early 1990s, the Falcon UP program restored the 8000-hour capability. Falcon UP effort was replicated to Service Life Extension Program (SLEP) for F-16A/B aircraft to assure their achieving 8000 hours.

Falcon STAR   Falcon STAR (Structural Augmentation Roadmap) is a program to repair and replace critical air frame components on all F-16 A/B/C/D aircraft; like Falcon UP. It is intended to ensure an 8000-hour service life, but is based on more recent operational statistics.

F-16 ACE       Avionics Capabilities Enhancement (ACE) introduced following :

  • “Full-glass cockpit” on an operational F-16
  • Featured an advanced fire-control radar
  • Up Front Control Panel (UFCP)
  • An option for a wide-angle head-up display (HUD) or a helmet-mounted display.

F-16 Falcon ONE    Glass cockpit” avionics is alternative to the MLU offering. The Falcon ONE includes:

  • Wide-angle HUD that can display FLIR imagery
  • Striker Helmet-Mounted Display (HMD)
  • Data link capability
  • FIAR Grifo radar

F-16 CCIP  The Common Configuration Implementation Program (CCIP) Phase 1 includes:

  • New Modular Mission Computers
  • Color cockpit display kits
  • Advanced IFF systems to domestically based Block 50/52 aircraft
  • Introduced the new Sniper Advanced Targeting Pod (ATP)
  • GPS-guided weapons were extended to the rest of the Block 50/52 fleet.

Phase II also includes:

  • Introduction of autonomous beyond-visual-range air-intercept capability
  • Link-16 data link
  • Joint Helmet-Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS)

CUPID  Combat Upgrade Plan Integration Details (CUPID) is an ongoing initiative to bring older U.S’s Block 25/30/32 F-16s closer to Block 50/52 specifications. CUPID focuses on:

  • Improved precision attack capabilities
  • Night vision equipment
  • Data links
  • Carriage of the Litening II infrared targeting pod
  • Laser- and GPS-guided weapons.
