LANCASTER, Pa., July 6 (UPI) -- U.S. company Herley Industries Inc. has been selected to provide the Captor Radar used in the Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft with microwave assembly technologies.
Herley says its Massachusetts-based New England Division was awarded the contract from an undisclosed customer. Under the approximately $2.8 million deal, Herley will provide its complex integrated microwave assembly to support the Captor Radar integrated with the Eurofighter Typhoon, the multinational fighter aircraft development project.
