Lockheed Martin has signed a contract with Navantia to equip the Spanish Navy's five new F110 multi-mission frigates and a land-based test site with a naval installation of its solid state S-band radar.

The new F110 frigates will be built by Spain’s national shipbuilder, Navantia.

Known in US service as the AN/SPY-7(V)1, the radar is derived from current in-service radar programmes.

Lockheed Martin and Spanish company, Indra, will jointly provide the radar. It will go to sea as part of the Aegis Weapon System, which will be integrated with the ship’s combat management system, SCOMBA, when the first frigate deploys in 2026.
