All 12 Future Submarines will be built in Adelaide with an Australian workforce which is why industry involvement is so vital to the construction and sustainment of the future submarine fleet. In 2016/17 we joined with the Department of Defence and Naval Group to host industry briefings across the country, and to date we have reached more than 850 companies, detailing the opportunities related to the program and how industry can become involved. These events have been supplemented by targeted Combat System specific briefs to over 148 companies highlighting the industrial capability requirements and proposed timing of opportunities for the Program.

Based in Adelaide, Saab Australia is a Defence, Security and Traffic Management solutions provider specialising in computer-based command and control systems. Employing over 400 Australians, the company is one of the country’s most respected defence and security system integrators and has a large number of highly experienced combat system engineers.
For over thirty years, Saab Australia has developed and integrated technology for the Royal Australian Navy and was a logical choice for Lockheed Martin to provide combat system integration services in support of the Future Submarine Program combat system. This further enhances Lockheed Martin’s maximisation of an Australian workforce and establishment of a sovereign submarine support capability.
