Project Spartan – An Innovative Light Frigate Design

Friday, November 25th, 2016

Steller Systems Ltd. is excited to announce Project Spartan – an innovative design for a configurable, modular, survivable, affordable and exportable ship that will meet the Royal Navy’s current and future requirements for a General Purpose Frigate (GPFF).  Our innovative solution includes a reconfigurable aft mission space with ramp access to embark Unmanned Vehicles (UXVs), sufficient power generation to accommodate systems growth over the next 30 years, and survivability designed in from the outset through the configuration of the vessel rather than relying on complex systems for this purpose.  Our underlying focus on exportability has produced an affordable design solution that will support the UK shipbuilding and defence systems industries and, in turn, will enable the Royal Navy to build fleet numbers.

Spartan is a highly configurable design that meets many navies’ needs now and in the future.  The Royal Navy will benefit from a survivable and highly capable ship that will be the backbone of the fleet for many years.  Ensuring that the design remains attractive to the global export market will bring economic advantages to the Royal Navy through efficiencies of scale, and will result in wider benefits to UK plc.
