Spanish F110-class frigates to be equipped with iXblue navigation systems

16th February 2021 - 09:34 GMT | by The Shephard News Team

The five new F110 frigates will replace six Santa Maria-class frigates currently in service with the Spanish Navy.

Spain’s Directorate General for Armament and Material (DGAM) and the Spanish Navy have selected iXblue’s Marins Series inertial navigation systems (INS) and Netans Navigation Data Distribution and Computation Systems to provide navigation capabilities to the five new F110-class frigates.  

Developed by Navantia for the Spanish Navy, the multi-mission frigates will be used for missions such as fleet protection and maritime security, and will be deployed to counter conventional and asymmetric threats. 

The 16 February announcement of the selection of iXBlue’s INS capability also stated that the first frigate is expected to be deployed in 2026 while the remaining four will be delivered up until 2031.
