Serco’s Design, Integration and Test (DIT) team based at Waterlooville, Hampshire, has been awarded a contract by the German Air Force.
Works to be undertaken by the team, part of Serco’s Defence business, involve the provision of two complete General Purpose Support Equipment (GPSE) suites of equipment to support the Armament Control System for the force’s expanding Eurofighter fleet.
Existing test applications will be developed to increase the level of automation and several updates will be made to in-service equipment to bring it into line with the current design standards.
The Waterlooville team has been working closely with the German Air Force since 2015, when the GPSE system was redesigned from the original UK Royal Air Force system, which is still in operation supporting Typhoon and Hawk aircraft.
