BAE Systems Australia delivers intelligent, capable and available assets to the Royal Australian Navy.
We employ more than 2,000 people in Australia who work alongside the Government, industry, trusted suppliers and academia to offer a whole-of-lifecycle maritime capability. This capability advances and safeguards Australia’s security and economic interests by leveraging cutting-edge digital technologies and complex engineering expertise.
Located in every mainland state, our people are responsible for the sustainment of the Royal Australian Navy’s military and commercial assets.
We are also responsible for the design and build of nine of the world’s most advanced anti-submarine warships, known as the Hunter class. Prototyping is progressing at pace at the Osborne Naval Shipyard in South Australia, where prototype blocks are being constructed.
The Hunter class frigates will provide the Royal Australian Navy with critical capability to help protect the nation for decades to come. But Hunter is more than just building ships; it is about growing an enduring and uniquely Australian sovereign industrial capability that supports continuous naval shipbuilding for future generations.
