Euronaval 2016: Navantia Showcasing a Scale Model of the F-110 Frigate for the First Time
Navantia of Spain is showcasing for the first time a scale model of the F-110 Frigate. The Spanish Navy will be replacing the "Santa Maria" class FFG Frigate with F-110 Frigate around 2025. The F-110 Frigate is not only focused on substituting the functionality of the "Santa Maria" class but also in providing solutions to facing latest threats and performing future expected missions.

The project key features are:
Blue and littoral water operations
Reduced crew
Efficiency in terms of operating and life cycle costs
High level of survivability (reduced probability of detection / ability to withstand attacks and complete the mission)
Comprehensive combat system suite covering all warfare areas: AAW, ASW, EW, assymetric warfare
Mission module capability (two helicopters, UXVs...)

From the start of the program, Navantia has been cooperating closely with the Spanish Navy in the requirements for a 21st century frigate and last year Navantia signed a contract with the Spanish MoD for the development of the project definition phase. In parallel, a suite of technological R&D programs have been initiated looking to acquire the latest innovations to be incorporated in the F-110 program.

Currently the program is running according to plan. During 2016, the project definition phase  intermediate project review of the ship platform will be conducted, as well as the first IPR of the modifications needed to the Spanish Navy Combat System "SCOMBA", which has been designed and developed by Navantia. For 2017, the main milestone is the ship platform system defenition review (SDR).
