The Boeing RC-135 is a large family of reconnaissance aircraft used by the United States Air Force to support
theater and national level intelligence consumers with near real-time on-scene collection, analysis and
The aircraft is an extensively modified C-135 with on-board sensors which enable the crew to detect, identify
and geolocate signals throughout the electromagnetic spectrum. The crew can then forward information in a
variety of formats to a wide range of consumers via the onboard secure communications suite.
In 2005, the RC-135 fleet completed a series of significant airframe, navigational and power-plant upgrades
which include re-engining from the Pratt & Whitney TF-33 to the CFM International CFM-56 (F-108) engines
used on the KC-135R and T Stratotanker and upgrade of the flight deck instrumentation and navigational systems
to the AMP standard. The AMP standard includes conversion from analog readouts to a digital "glass cockpit"
The current RC-135 fleet is the latest iteration of modifications to this pool of aircraft going back to the
early 1960s. Initially employed by Strategic Air Command for reconnaissance, the RC-135 fleet has also
participated in every armed conflict involving U.S. assets during its tenure. RC-135s supported operations in
Vietnam, the Mediterranean for Operation El Dorado Canyon, Grenada for Operation Urgent Fury, Panama for
Operation Just Cause, the Balkans for Operations Deliberate Force and Allied Force, and Southwest Asia for
Operations Desert Shield, Desert Storm, Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. RC-135s have maintained a constant
presence in Southwest Asia since the early 1990s.
All RC-135s were originally operated by Strategic Air Command. Since 1992 they have been assigned to Air Combat
Command. The RC-135 fleet is permanently based at Offutt Air Force Base, Nebraska and operated by the 55th
Wing, using forward operating locations worldwide. The 55th Wing operates 22 platforms in three variants: three
Cobra Ball, two Combat Sent, and 17 Rivet Joint.
The British Ministry of Defence has applied to the United States Government to purchase 3 RC-135V/W for the
Royal Air Force, as replacements for the Nimrod R1 aircraft which are nearing the end of their operational
life. On 22 March 2010, the British Ministry of Defence announced that it had reached agreement with the US
Government on 19 March 2010 to purchase 3 Rivet Joint aircraft along with associated ground systems to replace
the Nimrod R1 which is due to be retired in March 2011.
