BAE Systems and Dell Technologies innovate for UK Naval Defence

BAE Systems and Dell Technologies innovate for UK Naval Defence

BAE Systems is working with Dell Technologies on delivering innovative digital capability for the new City Class Type 26 frigates.

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.

The integrative approach builds on the successful deployment of a Shared Infrastructure solution across numerous other front-line naval platforms, including the Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers. It has already demonstrated exceptional operational reliability and reduced through-life costs, helping to future-proof the fleet and allow rapid capability deployment.
