Latest AEGIS Combat System Interoperability Tested Between DDG 51 and Spanish Navy Frigate

The U.S. Navy conducted a series of cooperative air defense test exercises with the Spanish Navy that culminated in live missile firing events using the latest Aegis Weapon System, July 20-21. This event was not only the first interoperability test of the latest Aegis Baseline 9.C1 with a foreign ship, but also the first combined Combat Systems Ship Qualification Trial with that country's navy since 2007. The destroyer USS Arleigh Burke (DDG 51) and the Spanish frigate Cristobol Col√≥n (F 105) participated in the testing.
