Indra has signed a contract worth more than EUR150 million with Lockheed Martin to supply some of the main components of the S-band radar for the Spanish Navy’s five new F-110 frigates.
Announcing the deal on 12 September, the company said it forms part of an overall package for the anti-aircraft system signed the previous week between the US group and Spanish shipbuilder Navantia.
It also represents the company’s first order for the F-110 since the government approved at the end of November a EUR1.63 billion tranche to get construction under way.
The key parts it supplies will form part of the Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) S-band anti-air warfare radar antenna, “one of the sensors that will make this frigate one of the most advanced of its kind in the world”, said Indra.
