Lockheed Martin and Indra have signed an agreement that extends their collaboration in the development of an S-band AESA radar for the Spanish Navy’s F-110 programme, Lockheed Martin announced on 28 November.

The agreement also paves the way for commercialisation of the radar for other anti-air warfare opportunities around the world.

The F-110 frigate is the Spanish Navy’s future multi-mission surface vessel. Production of the vessel is expected to commence in 2018. The first frigate would be commissioned in 2023 equipped with the first Aegis weapon system integrating the new solid state S-band radar.

The Spanish Navy already operates five Aegis-equipped Álvaro de Bazán-class frigates equipped with Lockheed Martin's SPY-1 radar and the Aegis Combat System.

Michele Evans, vice president, integrated warfare systems and sensors, Lockheed Martin, said: ‘Lockheed Martin has made significant investments in our solid state radar technologies including an open architecture design that more easily facilitates integration with other systems and components.

‘Our history of working with Indra and our investments in solid state radar technology make this a natural extension for our partnership and we look forward to seeing this solid state radar aboard F-110 and future air defence platforms around the world.’
