BAE Systems said it is working with Dell Technologies on delivering digital capability for the new City-class Type 26 frigates being built for the Royal Navy.
The first three frigates in this class include HMS Glasgow, a UK-designed ship currently being built on the Clyde in Glasgow.
The collaboration will deliver a Shared Infrastructure to host the ship’s essential systems, including a number provided by third parties, on a single, reliable digital platform. It will take full advantage of scalable, open, and coherent technology while providing enhanced durability, state-of-the-art security, and data protection. Additionally, the reduced footprint of the solution will provide environmental benefits.
