Project Spartan and the National Shipbuilding Strategy

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Steller Systems Ltd. welcomes Sir John Parker’s independent report to inform the UK National Shipbuilding Strategy.  We agree with the findings, especially that a “sea change” is needed in naval procurement.   We support the need for a “modern and innovative design” for the Type 31e, and we have designed Project Spartan, our design for a light frigate, to meet that challenge.  We have also designed this General Purpose Frigate (GPFF) contender with configurability, modularity and thus affordability in mind, whilst designing for the future with a good electrical power margin, a large hangar and a stern garage for unmanned vehicles.

We look forward to working with other UK-based companies to provide the best solution to meet the needs of the Royal Navy and the export market, to the economic advantage of the UK.  As the strategy states, the Type 31e needs to be “rapidly procured” and Steller Systems stands ready to deliver.
