Indra works with Hensoldt on new Typhoon AESA radar

4th August 2020 - 11:50 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Indra is co-developing a new version of the AESA radar for the Eurofighter Typhoon, in a consortium with Germany-based Hensoldt Sensors.

The new E-Scan Common Radar System MK. 1 (ECRS MK1) will equip Typhoons operated by the German and Spanish air forces.

‘This programme will deliver one of the world’s most sophisticated AESA electronic scanning radars and augment the operational capacity of Spanish and German Eurofighters,’ Indra claimed in a 4 August statement.

The Spanish company will participate in all system development phases with design authority over several new modules. It will also assume responsibility for certain critical functions.

ECRS MK1 is intended to bolster air-to-air and air-to-surface identification and detection, and increase the ability of Typhoon to resist interference, by using countermeasures based on the advanced electronic defence techniques. The radar will also possess electronic disturbance and listening capabilities.
