Andy Keough, Chief Executive, Defence SA will be speaking on the: Future Submarines Program
The Future Submarine Program (SEA1000) will deliver for Australia an affordable, regionally superior, conventional submarine capability, sustainable into the foreseeable future. They are of strategic importance to Australia and a critical element in the nation’s maritime security planning, with Australia’s national security and $1.6 trillion economy depend on secure sea lanes.
Techport Australia is the confirmed build location for the Future Submarine program. The largest Defence procurement in the nation’s history, the program is an investment of more than $50 billion in Australia’s security.
The project will transform South Australia’s economy and drive innovation across a range of sectors.
Key project infrastructure is also being targeted by the state, including the Future Submarine Design Centre and Combat System Design Integration and Test Facility. A Future Submarine Technical Office based in Adelaide is already working on the project, drawing in expertise from around the world.
