According to Philip Dunne, Minister of State (Defence Procurement), Typhoon is to receive Storm Shadow and Meteor in 2018.
The information comes from a written response to a parliamentary question and is displayed below.
Asked by Mr Kevan Jones (MP for North Durham):
“To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what recent progress has been made on integrating the Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft with (a) Storm Shadow missiles, (b) Meteor missiles, (c) the DASS radar system and (d) other avionics.”
Answered by Mr Philip Dunne:
“The UK is committed to a series of phased enhancement programmes for Typhoon to increase its overall capability. Under current plans, the in-service dates on Typhoon will be August 2018 for Storm Shadow, and June 2018 for Meteor. Integration trials on both weapons are continuing. The Defensive Aids Sub System (DASS) is an existing part of the UK Typhoon fleet and is subject to continued review and enhancement. Separate development of an Active Electronic Scanned Array radar for Typhoon also continues.”
Meteor is an active radar guided beyond-visual-range air-to-air missile (BVRAAM) being developed by MBDA. The system will offer a multi-shot capability against long range manoeuvring targets in a heavy electronic countermeasures (ECM) environment with range in excess of 100 km.
