SELEX Galileo awarded a £19M contract from the UK MoD for an AESA Technology Demonstrator Programme

17th February 2010 - 17:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


SELEX Galileo, a Finmeccanica Company, has received a £19M Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar Technology Demonstrator Programme (TDP) contract from the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence (UK MoD). The contract includes development and build of a first of type, multi-function, wide field of regard AESA radar providing increased capability and performance when compared to conventional AESA Fire Control radar systems.

Aimed at future UK platforms, the AESA TDP will focus on Day/Night All Weather targeting, high resolution Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), and Air – Air targeting and communications and will raise the technology readiness levels of the enabling hardware, de-risk the capability and demonstrate maturity of concept. After rigorous ground and compact antenna test range testing, the radar is planned to fly on a Royal Air Force Typhoon aircraft in the UK.

This TDP programme builds on previous investment from UK MoD and SELEX Galileo’s considerable internal investment in AESA technology and product development.
