Spanish Frigate Feature Aegis System

Monday, March 04, 2002
Spain's Izar, for the Spanish Navy, reently launched the second of four frigates that are part of its F-100 program. All four frigates will be equipped with the Lockheed Martin Aegis Combat System. The ship, Almirante Juan de Borbon (F-102), was launched in ceremonies at the Izar shipyard in Ferrol, Spain. In addition, the keel was laid for F-103 during today's ceremonies. Lockheed Martin Naval Electronics & Surveillance Systems (NE&SS) is the combat system engineering agent on the F-100 program. The first ship in the class, Alvaro de Bazan (F-101), is scheduled to be commissioned in October. The Spanish Navy selected the Aegis Combat System for its F-100 frigate program in 1996. "This is an exciting time for all of us involved in this program," said Fred Moosally, president of Lockheed Martin NE&SS. "We have an extraordinary, fully integrated team of Spanish and U.S. experts from the shipbuilding and electronics industries to produce Europe's most advanced and capable frigates. We're proud to be a part of the team and awed by the total commitment shown by every member."
