ERZIA Technologies will deliver several Integrated Microwave Assemblies (IMA) to Indra, designed for Electronic Warfare (EW) purposes, under a multi-year contract between both companies. Several different modules were designed to comply with the specifications for the new F-110 frigate’s EW systems for the Spanish Navy.

The electronic defense and intelligence systems aim to provide a strategic edge by gaining Radio Frequency (RF) spectrum supremacy. This is the case for the new class of F-110 Frigates of the Spanish Armada equipped with EW systems that serve as a foundational pillar to ensure their superiority in all types of operational scenarios. 

This high-technology equipment allows for the reception, interception, and emission of RF and microwave signals with different purposes, from intercepting communications for intelligence gathering to protecting naval ships from threats or missile attacks by emitting Electronic Countermeasures (ECM).

ERZIA has designed and produced several IMA for Indra for the suite of the F-110’s EW systems. This year the company will start large scale production that will span over a period of five years to complete the five frigates of the series. 

“These are high-performance supercomponents with sophisticated functionality concentrated in a very small form,” said David Diez, ERZIA’s Director of Microwave Division. “We are implementing state-of-the-art technology for extraordinarily adverse scenarios. Very few ships can count on a system like this.”
