Boosting Eurofighter Typhoon EW Support
- Teaming agreement signed with Selex ES to provide Electronic Warfare support for Typhoon customers
We have signed a teaming agreement with Selex ES that will see us working together to provide Electronic Warfare Operational Support (EWOS) for Eurofighter Typhoon customers. The work will initially focus on current and potential future export campaigns, and the Eurofighter Typhoon core programme where appropriate.
EWOS is the combination of mission support tools, processes, people and specialised training that is fundamental to transforming mission data into mission advantage for EW operators. Under the agreement, we will work with Selex ES to design, develop, deliver, integrate and support a potential export customer’s EWOS requirements, providing them with a sovereign EWOS capability.

Richard Hamilton, our Head of Support Services said: “This teaming agreement represents an important step for both BAE Systems and Selex ES. It provides both parties with the opportunity to work together to deliver Electronic Warfare support that will maximize the capability of the Typhoon platform for our Export customers. We are looking forward to working together to deliver this capability.”
“This agreement recognises Selex ES as BAE Systems’ strategic partner for electronic warfare and EW mission support” said Chris Bushell, SVP Electronic Warfare at Selex ES, adding “We’re looking forward to working even more closely with BAE Systems on EWOS and have agreed to also look at non-Typhoon EW support solutions where there is mutual benefit to doing so.”
