CAPTOR-E Radar

The Captor E electronically scanned radar is the future primary sensor on Eurofighter Typhoon.

The Captor-E electronically scanned radar is the future primary sensor on Eurofighter Typhoon and has a full suite of Air-to-Air and Air-to-Surface modes. 

The capacious aperture of the Eurofighter Typhoon allows the installation of Captor-E’s optimised and repositionable array whose field of regard is some 50 per cent wider than traditional fixed plate systems.

This wide field of regard offers significant benefits in both Air-to-Air and Air-to-Surface engagements and given the large power and aperture available provides the pilot with much enhanced angular coverage compared to fixed plate systems.

CAPTOR-E will provide the following Key Features:

  • Multimode Air/Air and Air/Ground fire control radar with WFoR re-positioner
  • Increased Air-to-Air Range -Faster detection and tracking of targets
  • Improved Tracking Performance
  • Interleaved/ 'simultaneous' Air/Air & Air/Ground
  • Extended Missile Guidance -Increased Operational Availability
  • Reduced Life Cycle Cost -Growth Potential for Future Enhancements
