Germany selects the EuroDASS consortium to equip new Typhoons with Praetorian Defensive Aids Sub-System.

The EuroDASS consortium will equip Germany‚Äôs new fleet of 38 Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft with the Praetorian Defensive Aids Sub-System (DASS)

The Eurofighter Typhoon will join the German Luftwaffe to replace their Tranche 1 Typhoon aircraft.

The Praetorian DASS equips the aircraft with advanced protection from threats including IR and radar-guided missiles.

The system has a proven reputation having been battle-tested in peace-keeping operations in Libya and Syria.

 It integrates sensors and electronic warfare jamming to provide exceptional situational awareness, platform protection and advanced electronic deception techniques.

Praetorian is an open and programmable electronic warfare system. Germany is in complete control of its mission data and can boost the survivability of its Typhoons by adjusting the system according to battlefield data on a mission-by-mission basis.

Other aircraft are equipped with defensive aids systems that include a generic mission data set and their feedback loop may take several months, whereas the Praetorian can do the same in an extremely short time. 

The EuroDASS consortium is a partnership comprised of Leonardo, Elettronica, Indra and Hensoldt.
