ROME, May 29 (UPI) -- Italy's Selex ES reports it has completed deliveries of its Praetorian electronic warfare self-protection system for Tranche 2 Eurofighter Typhoons.
The Praetorian system of missile approach warning elements and electronic countermeasures is being fitted onto 23 Tranche 2 Typhoons operated by Britain, Spain, Italy and Germany.
Selex ES, which leads the EuroDASS consortium to deliver the Praetorian system, said it is obligated to deliver the system for Tranche 3A Typhoons and that the first batch of systems has been delivered and installed. The company will also provide Praetorian for a Middle Eastern operator of the aircraft.
"As Europe's leader in electronic warfare, we're proud to play such a prominent role in the protection of the Eurofighter Typhoon," said Pete Forrest, vice president of Marketing and Sales for Electronic Warfare at Selex ES. "As a company we continue to invest 15 percent of revenues in research and development, which has led to us bringing to market highly advanced EW products like our SAGE electronic support measure system."
