The Ministry of Defence say the project to demonstration, manufacture and integrate AESA radars with the Typhoon fleet is “continuing at pace”.
Kevan Jones, Member of Parliament for North Durham, asked via a Parliamentary written question:
“To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what progress has been made on fitting the AESA radar to the UK Typhoon fleet.”
Jeremy Quin, Minister of State for the Ministry of Defence, answered:
“The Ministry of Defence is committed to implementing an Active Electronically Scanned Array radar on our Typhoon fleet. The demonstration and manufacture phase for the UK’s variant of the European Common Radar System is continuing at pace, and in June 2020 a contract was let with our European partners to develop a common integration solution across the Typhoon radar enterprise.”
