To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, pursuant to the Answer of 19 November 2018 to Question 189831 on European Aircraft: safety measures, what the timeframe is for the Typhoon aircraft to be compliant with Part 13 sub paragraph 220.127.116.11 of MAA/Def Stan 00-970 (Aircraft Collision Avoidance System).
15 January 2019
The Typhoon Enhanced Collision Awareness System (ECAS) will enter service with the United Kingdom's Typhoon fleet later this year. Typhoon ECAS is a collision awareness system. As such, it is not required to comply with Def Stan 00-970 Part 13 sub paragraph 18.104.22.168 and there are no current plans for it to do so.
