Eurofighter Typhoon Radar Prototype to be Ready This Year

Our Bureau - : Jul 18, 2022 - : 6:44 am

The Eurofighter Typhoon will soon receive a state-of-the-art European Common Radar System (ECRS) Mk 2 radar.

Leonardo is currently on contract to develop the radar up to the delivery of the prototype this year. The UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) will find a £2.35 billion Eurofighter Typhoon upgrade which will cover the remainder of the development work, including the integration of the ECRS Mk 2 radar.

The new contract will cover the remainder of the development work, including integration by BAE Systems. The radar is being developed by Leonardo UK in Edinburgh and Luton and integrated by BAE Systems in Warton. ECRS Mk2 will be delivered into Royal Air Force (RAF) service towards the end of the decade.

“The ECRS Mk2 radar is a transformational upgrade for our Typhoon aircraft, and a step change in capability. It will ensure Typhoon is ready and able to protect our skies into the future, in the face of fast-evolving threats to the UK and our allies,” Chief of the Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal Sir Mike Wigston, said.

The ECRS Mk 2 radar will allow the aircraft to simultaneously detect, identify and track multiple targets in the air and on the ground. The Typhoon will also receive the latest mission computer and cockpit interface, as well as an improved navigation system and signal jamming technology as part of the upgrade.
