Across Australia, we are creating a unique domestic capability – an integral part of a stronger, more sovereign Australian industry
Since 1953, we have worked purposefully to provide some of the world’s most advanced, technology-led defence, aerospace and security solutions.
We are a trusted partner of the Commonwealth of Australia, managing more than 200 programs. We pride ourselves on long and enduring relationships with many Australian suppliers with some 1,600 local businesses already a part of our supply chain.
BAE Systems Australia’s subsidiary ASC Shipbuilding will deliver the $35 billon Hunter Class Frigate Program – the largest surface ship build project in the nation’s defence history and a program that will transform the Australian shipbuilding industry.
ASC Shipbuilding and the Commonwealth are working collaboratively to ensure this program doesn’t just build ships, but builds a continuous naval shipbuilding industry and supports the workforce for generations to come.
Today, we deliver a total maritime sustainment capability gained from over 30 years’ experience across six classes of vessels for the Royal Australian Navy.
Our 1,100-strong team is delivering capability solutions for 22 out of 46 naval assets.
Our teams provide project management, asset management, engineering, maintenance and supply support services to ensure the fleet is available whenever the Navy needs it.
We are placing Australia at the forefront of technology through continual investment and strong collaborative relationships with the Defence Science & Technology Group, universities and other Australian industry organisations.
We deliver challenging and complex platform and systems integration projects for the Australian Defence force providing a critical advantage through products such as the Nulka and ESSM.
From maritime sustainment to shipbuilding or systems integration we are providing solutions and technology that will shape the future of Defence industry.
We’re excited to showcase our proud heritage and the future of Australian defence at the Pacific International Maritime Exposition, the only comprehensive international exhibition of its kind in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.
