The contract covers service tasks for HENSOLDT's share of various Eurofighter systems in the areas of radar, self-protection and avionics. HENSOLDT's service contributes to the desired increase in the number of Eurofighter flying hours.

The full service flight hour contract is organized through consortial partnerships in the four Eurofighter core nations (UK, Italy, Spain and Germany) and mandated through several national contracts via the Eurofighter partner companies (Airbus GE, Airbus SP, BAE Systems UK, Leonardo Aircraft Division IT).

HENSOLDT is the national leader of the Radar- and DASS- (Defensive Aids Subsystem) Consortium for the service of the German user until the end of 2026 and is also the service and consortium partner for the other nations.

When the contract comes into force, the assemblies of the four Eurofighter core nations with their total of approximately 500 aircraft will be maintained by the HENSOLDT sites in Ulm, Friedrichshafen, Taufkirchen, Neuburg and Laage.

The German sites in Neuburg and Laage have TDCs (Technical Diagnostic Cells). Here, HENSOLDT technicians repair radar and self-protection components of the German Eurofighters on site in the shortest possible time.

In addition, the Radar Automatic Test Equipment (RATE) system developed and supported by HENSOLDT is used in all Eurofighter nations. It supports the technicians on site both in troubleshooting and in the final re-certification of assemblies for flight operations after repairs have been carried out.
