This site's mission is to document and analyse the AEGIS and AEGIS-like multi-role, but principally anti-air escort vessels of the world. AEGIS-like is defined here as a major combatant used as an escort vessel that incorporates the following into its design: Phased Array Radar System (PARS), Vertical Launch System (VLS) for it's primary missile battery, and a digitially controlled, fully integrated battle management system capable of controlling all phases of combat, potentially digitally linked to other vessels for cooperative engagements. Use the links to navigate the site. Be advised, some pages on this site are pictorial intensive and will load slowly on slower connections.
