The development of a collision warning system for the Typhoon aircraft is at the concept phase and no investment decisions have yet been made. It is too early to say what the time or cost of installing a collision warning system in Typhoon might be. By way of context, other than the installations on our Tornado fleet, we are not aware of any combat jet in the world fitted with a collision warning system, which have been designed for use on civil and commercial aircraft.
