Selex ES and BAE Systems have signed a teaming agreement 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, Selex ES and BAE Systems will work closely together to design, develop, deliver, integrate and support a potential export customer’s EWOS requirements, providing them with a sovereign EWOS capability.
“This agreement recognises Selex ES as BAE Systems’ strategic partner for electronic warfare and EW mission support,” said Ramie Smith, VP EWOS 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.”
Richard Hamilton, Head of Support Services at BAE Systems’ Military Air & Information business, 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 maximise the capability of the Typhoon platform for our Export customers. We are looking forward to working together to deliver this capability.”
