Lockheed Martin has extended its collaboration agreement with Navantia, Spain’s defense and shipbuilding company and naval Combat System Integration agent.

This agreement will extend the current agreement three years and allow the companies to continue to explore commercial opportunities in surface ships and submarines together to further expand the 27-year relationship.

The collaboration between the two companies equipped the Spanish Navy with the Aegis Combat System in the F-100 frigates. The partnership has led to the successful integration between the Aegis Combat System and frigates for the Spanish Navy, as well as for the Norwegian and Australian navies for over two decades The two companies also collaborate in the integration of the combat management system and the sonar systems for the S-80 submarines for the Spanish Navy.

The F-110 will soon join the Spanish Navy’s family of frigates. With the first two ships already in the construction phase, Lockheed Martin and Navantia have major upcoming milestones, including tracking live objects with AN/SPY-7(v)2 radar at Lockheed Martin’s Aegis-SCOMBA Integration Center in Moorestown, New Jersey.

The integration of the Aegis and SCOMBA Combat System tactical computer programs will also take place at ASIC and Navantia’s land-based test site in San Fernando, Spain. Both milestones will continue to demonstrate the F-110 program is on track for the first frigate to be commissioned in 2028.

“Our collaboration on projects such as the F-100 frigate and the F-110 multi-mission frigate is a testament to our commitment to provide Spain the right capabilities for its missions. The extension of our long-standing relationship with Navantia will help sustain high-value jobs in Spain with the goal of further collaboration between our two companies,” said Chauncey McIntosh, Integrated Warfare Systems and Sensors vice president at Lockheed Martin.

“Our focus to support not only the Spanish Navy’s mission needs but also our allies around the globe are foundational to our relationship with Navantia. Over nearly three decades, we have expanded our collaboration to develop key capabilities and mission solutions from undersea warfare to integrated air and missile defense,” said Joe DePietro, C6ISR vice president at Lockheed Martin.

“Our collaboration has been and continues to be pivotal in elevating our common products to the forefront of technology. Extending this collaboration demonstrates our commitment to designing, building and delivering the best solutions to our clients both in the surface ship and submarine domains,” said Donato Martínez, Systems and Services vice president and CTO, Navantia.
