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

The first three frigates in this class include HMS Glasgow, a cutting-edge UK-designed ship currently being built on the Clyde in Glasgow.
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 of these two industry leaders 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.
Amelia Gould, Naval Ships Combat Systems Director at BAE Systems, said: “We’re delighted to continue our work with Dell Technologies. Our combined solutions provide the Digital Backbone to the Carrier Strike Group and Type 26. The collaboration reinforces our digital capability and provides mutual benefit by allowing us to have first-look access to the latest digital technologies and provides Dell with useful insights on complex uses for their solutions.”
Dayne Turbitt, senior vice president and general manager at Dell Technologies for the UK said: “Our collaborative development approach with BAE Systems on the next generation of world-class naval ships reflects the strength of our successful and long-standing relationship and reinforces our mission to provide a vital advantage in protecting what matters. Together we’re driving leading-edge, secure technology that can be deployed and integrated fast and delivered in the most demanding environments—ultimately supporting BAE customers to make faster and better decisions and improve Defence outcomes.”
