Press Release, Munich, 19 October 2020: The Spanish Ministry of Defense (MoD) has ordered the construction of five new F-110 frigates by Navantia to replace the Spanish Navy’s Santa Maria-class frigates. The new Bonifaz-class multi-mission frigates are specialised in anti-submarine warfare. They will be used for force and fleet protection, maritime security, joint and combined missions and to prevent conventional and asymmetric threats.

Rohde & Schwarz (Spain) signed a contract with Navantia to design and supply external communications systems for Line Of Sight and Beyond Line Of Sight communications.

“Rohde & Schwarz (Spain) has been a reliable local partner for the Spanish Navy and Navantia for decades, providing first-class equipment and services for a wide variety of platforms, such as the Juan Carlos I (L-61) landing helicopter dock (LHD), Galicia-class landing platform dock (LPD), F-100 and F-105 frigates, Meteoro-class offshore patrol vessel (OPV) and the upcoming S-80+ submarines,” says Rafael Falagan, Sales Manager Secure Communications & Radiomonitoring, Rohde & Schwarz (Spain).
