Jenoptik announced today that it has delivered radome to BAE Systems for Eurofighter Typhoon.

The 200th protective dome delivery in Great Britain represents the multi-national Eurofighter consortium. The 2.30 meter long radome is made from fiber glass-reinforced plastic and forms the tip of the aircraft.

The radome acts as a cover for the sensitive radar system behind it and undergoes radar-electrical optimization so that the radar signals can be received and transmitted without distortion.

The Jenoptik Defense & Civil Systems division is the consortium leader for the development and manufacture of the Eurofighter Typhoon radome.

The fiber glass-reinforced plastic unit is produced at the division’s main site in Wedel and delivered to the Eurofighter final assembly lines in Great Britain, Spain, Italy or Germany after final radar-electrical measurement.

Apart from manufacturing the radomes for the Eurofighter Typhoon, Jenoptik also manufactures weather radomes such as the ones for the NH90 transport helicopter, and provides service for AWACS rotodomes.

Eurofighter Typhoon is considered as most advanced swing-role combat aircraft providing deployable Air-to-Air as well as Air-to-Surface capabilities. The Typhoon was designed and is manufactured by a consortium of  Alenia Aermacchi, Airbus Group and BAE Systems.
