Leonardo has won 40 million pounds ($52 million) to upgrade anti-missile defense systems of UK’s Eurofighter Typhoon fighter jets.

"Today's announcement is a clear example of how it (the Typhoon) is being continually enhanced and upgraded so it remains as effective tomorrow as it is today," Defence Secretary Michael Fallon said on Thursday.

The work will improve Typhoon's Defensive Aids Sub System (DASS) supplied by Leonardo, and the government said it would help the aircraft in missions against Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, Reuters reported.
