Adaptable Strike Frigate:

Embracing technology to deliver future naval capability at the speed of relevance



BAE Systems has a proven track-record of collaborating with global and local partners in support of the supply of systems and the integrated platforms from which military operations are conducted. In developing the Adaptable Strike Frigate concept, BAE Systems has collaborated with our colleagues across both the commercial and defence industry to explore innovative concepts and technologies that will shape the conduct of platform design for future operations. Optimised for the management, employment and exploitation of uncrewed, disaggregated systems the Adaptable Strike Frigate is positioned to enhance  this collaboration and BAE Systems would welcome further engagement from International Navies and industry representatives to continue to iterate the Adaptable Strike Frigate concept to our emerging customer requirements.
