Elettronica will study for the updating of the onboard Dass system on Typhoon plane
Together with the other partners for the Eurofighter Long Term Evolution
Today, as part of the third day of the "Paris Air Show" in Le Bourget (June 17-23, see AVIONEWS), the Eurofighter GmbH has announced the acquisition of the NETMA contract for the feasibility study of the Typhoon Long Term Evolution (LTE) airplane, worth 53M€ and to be completed within 19 months.
The objective of the study is to offer an operational and technological development of the platform to counter the continuous threats evolution and to allow the highest and effectiveness operational level for the entire life of the platform, estimated until 2050.
Within the framework of this contract, a fundamental part is related to the study for the updating of the Praetorian Defensive Aids Sub System (DASS). Elettronica, together with other Eurodass partners, will work to define a new solution based on the cutting-edge technologies and advanced engineering architecture solutions.
The Dass activity boosts the ability to guarantee the platform the development of increasingly demanding and critical operational missions.
The LTE activity, and therefore also the DASS one, represents a great opportunity and can be the "technological bridge" for next evolution of the sixth-generation jet fighter.
Elettronica will support such strategic program making available its expertise, consolidated over 70 years of world reference in Electronic Warfare.
