MADRID, Oct. 21 (UPI) -- A Spanish consortium is teaming with Indonesian shipbuilder PT PAL to update the combat system of an Indonesian navy corvette.
The partnering comes for work on the Fatahillah-class corvette -- the Malahayati -- under a contract between Indra and Navantia with PT PAL, which is worth about $18 million.
Indra said the modernization of the combat system involves renovation of the ship's sensors and fire control systems and their integration through a modern combat management system.
"The contract represents fresh deployment of some of the most advanced systems offered by the companies to the naval sector, including Indra's ESM RIGEL electronic defense and DORNA fire control platforms, as well as Navantia's combat management system ...," Indra said.
The two companies have partnered on a number of naval programs, including development of the Spanish navy's future F110 frigate.
