BAE Awarded GBP80M in Typhoon Avionics Support Contracts

  • Eurofighter avionics support contracts will help keep Typhoon aircraft mission ready

BAE Systems will continue to service and support the Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft’s avionics for the platform’s founding nations’ air forces in Germany, Spain, the United Kingdom, and Italy, for the next five years.

The agreements, worth £80 million, secure ongoing service and repairs for key avionics equipment such as displays, flight controls, and Helmet Mounted Displays, ensuring that the Typhoon is ready for deployment at all times.

“BAE Systems’ avionics service and support team helps our customers ensure that Typhoon is ready to secure our skies and support the UK’s international allies 24/7, 365 days a year,” said Jim Whittington, senior project manager at BAE Systems’ Rochester, UK facility. “The flexibility within these services will help increase our customers’ flying capability, whereby we are able to meet any additional service demands.”
