Thales has been selected as the mission systems integrator for the Royal Navy’s Type 31 frigate programme, the company announced on 6 February.

The company will deliver the Tacticos mission system, integrating combat system, communications systems and the navigation and bridge system for the five T31 general purpose frigates.

In order to support the programme, Thales is expanding its capabilities in mission systems delivery in the UK. A new team has been established in Crawley, West Sussex, and a new naval combat management centre has also been developed to provide a space for customers, employees and end-users to train and test Thales systems.

Victor Chavez, chief executive, Thales in the UK, said: ‘Thales has been at the forefront of innovation with the Royal Navy for over 100 years. We are immensely proud of the trusted critical solutions we provide to the Royal Navy to protect our waters. This means we can continue to expand our significant UK footprint whilst also looking to export markets.’
