BAE Systems has been a collaborative leader and contributor to the maritime domain for decades, delivering capable and available maritime assets for the Royal Australian Navy across a range of alliance and partnership constructs.


Our end-to-end capability spans six classes of vessels with support extending to 22 out of 46 Royal Australian naval assets including Hobart Class (DDG), Adelaide Class (FFG), Anzac Class (FFH), Canberra Class (LHD), Leeuwin Class (Hydrographic Fleet Vessels) and Collins Class submarines.

Working side-by-side with the Commonwealth, industry, trusted suppliers and academia, we are committed to advancing Australia’s security and economic interests by offering a world-leading maritime capability that leverages cutting edge technologies and complex engineering-expertise to optimise a 21st century fleet.


 Operating across five Australian sites and supported by an extensive network of over 1600 sovereign suppliers with a deep naval heritage, we are well positioned to deliver through-life capability for the next generation Royal Australian Navy leveraging unparalleled digital and industry 4.0 expertise.


This includes the design and build of nine Hunter class frigates as well as the upgrade and sustainment of the ANZAC-class, Hobart-class and Leeuwin-class vessels.


We are uniquely positioned to support the Commonwealth’s future maritime sustainment model and the transformation objectives outlined in Plan Galileo. In particular, we are focused on delivering continuous naval shipbuilding and sustainment capabilities and integrating smarter thinking at the design phase to ensure every platform is truly optimised throughout the life cycle.
