BIRKEROD, Denmark, April 15 (UPI) — Danish company Flatirons Solutions has teamed with Airbus Defense and Space in a bid to supply the Danish Air Force with Eurofighter Typhoon combat aircraft.
Under the agreement signed Thursday, Flatirons will provide its CORENA Suite software for production and ongoing management of Danish Eurofighter Typhoon maintenance publications, including airframe and engine manuals.
The CORENA Suite-powered Flatirons Multi-Spec Solution software included provides full content lifecycle management for mobile maintenance and technical operations.
The teaming agreement for the Danish Fighter Replacement Program builds on a long-term partnership between Flatirons and Airbus Group, including collaboration in support of Airbus’s NH90 and Tiger programs, Flatirons said.
The Typhoon is produced by a consortium comprised of Airbus, Alenia Aermacchi, and BAE Systems. It is a twin-engine multi-role fighter with a maximum speed at altitude of 1,550 miles per hour and a combat radius of 100 t0 350 nautical miles depending on mission.
If procured by Denmark, the Typhoon would replace aging F-16 aircraft, which are to be phased out of service.
“Flatirons has enjoyed a productive relationship with Airbus Group through our work on defense helicopter programs, and we are gratified to extend our partnership in support of the Eurofighter Typhoon entry for the Danish Fighter Replacement Program,” said Flatiron Chief Executive Officer Geoffrey Godet.
