Indra mentioned Monday it’s furthering the combination of one of the crucial necessary components for the evolution of the system that protects the Eurofighter Hurricane in opposition to enemy missile assaults and radar. The corporate will improve the Praetorian DASS’s bandwidth to extend the plane’s potential to detect threats and fly safely throughout its most complicated missions.
On the Royal Worldwide Air Tattoo (RIAT), the world’s largest navy air occasion, Leonardo, on behalf of the EuroDASS consortium (Leonardo, Elettronica, Indra and Hensoldt), introduced the following package deal of enhancements to the Praetorian DASS self-protection system. This has been accompanied by a static exhibition of the important thing enhancement proposed, together with the bandwidth enhancement developed by Indra.
These enhancements shall be introduced to the Eurofighter Hurricane accomplice nations, that are Germany, Spain, Italy and the UK, and subsequently supplied to export prospects. Their growth will improve the survivability of the plane and lay the foundations for the defence system’s integration with Hurricane’s extremely succesful E-scan radars.

Indra’s Defence Platforms director, Pedro Barco, highlighted that “Indra is the second-largest provider of avionics techniques for the Eurofighter Hurricane and the one firm concerned within the evolution of the self-protection system and the event of the 2 new variations of the radar, as soon as once more highlighting the corporate’s potential to speed up the event of the brand new era of applied sciences that European armed forces are demanding”.
Along with the better bandwidth, the brand new Praetorian DASS will incorporate a brand new superior digital sign processing, collectively developed with the EuroDASS accomplice Hensoldt, and new sign processing algorithms, in addition to elevated processing velocity, capability and reminiscence.
