Hillend, United Kingdom | BAE Systems Manufacturing at Hillend in Fife has been awarded a major contract worth in excess of £20million to provide procurement and electronic manufacturing services to SELEX Galileo, as part of their contract to deliver the Typhoon Tranche 3a Captor radar programme, which is the primary sensor for the Typhoon jet, and one of the most technically advanced airborne radar systems in the world. Work on the programme is due to commence at BAE Systems’ Hillend facility this year and will run until 2013.


Danny O’Brien, General Manager stated “The recent award is a reflection of the strong business relationship between SELEX Galileo and BAE Systems Manufacturing Hillend. The close working style will enable effective responses to existing and next generation programmes.”


Manufacturing Hillend has won over £165m orders in the last 12 years from their Customer SELEX Galileo for both Captor Radar and DASS (Defensive Aids Sub System) assemblies used on the Typhoon combat aircraft.


The Captor radar represents a major programme of sub-contract work for Hillend comprising multiple types of complex printed circuit boards and electronic modules, which make up one of the most vital elements of the radar system.


Andy Brown, VP business procurement at SELEX Galileo, stated “The end result that was achieved for these contract awards has followed a number of months of sterling effort by both companies. We have jointly addressed the challenges from our Customer Chain, and also reflected the need to “up the ante” in a tough economic climate. Team work between our two companies made a real difference, and gives us both a strong platform for success in these important programmes”.
