The SEA 5000 Future Frigate announcement has been hotly anticipated in recent months with those bidding for the contract joining the Defence Connect Podcast to discuss their submissions. The announcement has today been made with BAE securing the $35-billion contract.


In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, Andy Keough managing director of SAAB Australia joins host Phil Tarrant to discuss their involvement in the SEA 5000 Future Frigate program, which will see them continuing their already strong partnership with Lockheed Martin to integrate a common core operating system and interface across all navy fleets.
