SEA 1000 Attack Class Future Submarine

SEA 1000 Attack Class Future Submarine

The Attack Class submarines will be delivered as part of the $50 billion SEA 1000 Future Submarine program.

Naval Group build 12 regionally-superior submarines to the Royal Australian Navy.

NAVAL Group's successful Shortfin Barracuda design, which serves as the basis for the new Attack Class, is a conventionally-powered variant of the nuclear-powered Barracuda fast attack submarine currently under construction for the French Navy.

Lockheed Martin will provide the AN/BYG-1 Combat control System, which provides an open-architecture submarine combat control system for analysing and tracking submarine and surface-ship contacts, providing situational awareness as well as the capability to target and employ torpedoes and missiles.

The 12 vessels will be built by NAVAL Group at a specialist submarine shipyard at Osborne, South Australia.

The Commonwealth Government’s Australian Naval Infrastructure (ANI) program will support the development of the future submarine shipyards.

The Commonwealth Government formally signed the strategic partnering agreement (SPA) with NAVAL Group in February 2019 ahead of confirming the final design specifications and requirements for the Attack class submarines.

The Attack class will enter service with the Royal Australian Navy at a time when 50 percent of the world’s submarines will be operating in the Indo-Pacific region
