  • (1888PressRelease) June 21, 2019 - Earlier this year, Spain’s Ministry of Defence signed a US$4.9 billion contract to build five new frigates, which started construction this May. The F-110 frigates are the Spanish Navy’s next generation of multi-mission surface vessels with the most advanced integrated control and simulation systems, equipped with a Spanish combat system – SCOMBA.

    The frigates will also be the first ships in the fleet to have an integrated cybersecurity system that shields ships against increasing threats and enabling the ship to have reduced crew for its operation and high standards of habitability.

    With this in mind, delegates at the Maritime Information Warfare conference, taking place on the 18th-19th November 2019 in London, will hear from Commander Juan Jose Nieto Conde, SCOMBA Technical Director, Spanish Ministry of Defence on day-1 of the event.

    Commander Juan Jose Nieto Conde will be presenting on ‘Advancing Future Combat Management Systems: The Spanish F110 Frigate Programme’. The presentation will cover:

    • How the F110 Frigate programme is strengthening Spanish information warfare capabilities
    • Developing data-capture techniques to build greater operational information superiority at sea
    • Development of SCOMBA combat management system to integrate and display data from a range of sensors
    • Utilisation of open source architectures within SCOMBA to ensure multi-mission interoperability
    • Prioritising combat information system development and advancement in future acquisitions
