HUDSON, N.H., March 12 (UPI) -- A U.S. company that makes microwave and radio frequency components has been contracted for the Eurofighter Typhoon program.

Micronetics Inc. said a "prime international customer" has given it a $1 million award to produce microwave components that will be integrated into the aircraft's Captor active, electronically scanned array radar system.

"We are pleased to continue our role as a key supplier to the Eurofighter Typhoon program and this new order reflects our customer's confidence in our ability to deliver critically important, high performance microwave components," said Micronetics Chief Executive Officer David Robbins.

Details on what components are to be supplied weren't disclosed but Micronetics said delivery of the items would begin in the second quarter of fiscal 2013.

Captor is a multi-mode pulse Doppler radar specifically designed for the Typhoon and produced by the Euroradar consortium, which includes Selex Galileo, EADS and Indra.

The Typhoon, a multi-role fighter, is produced by Eurofighter GmbH, a company formed in 1986 by EADS, Alenia Aeronautica and BAE Systems.
