BAE Systems has submitted its bid to the Australian Government for the nation’s SEA 5000 Future Frigate program.

 The bid is to partner with the Government to develop a long-term ship building strategy in Australia for complex warships and to offer a proposal to build nine Anti-Submarine Warfare Frigates for the Royal Australian Navy, the company said in a statement Friday.

BAE Systems is offering the Global Combat Ship-Australia, a variant of its Type 26 Global Combat Ship which commenced manufacture for the first of three ships for the UK’s Royal Navy 20 July.

The bid was put together by a joint UK and Australian team to ensure the learning and knowledge from the Type 26 program is fully complemented by the maritime skills and expertise of BAE Systems’ team in Australia.

The Type 26 benefits from a modern digital design approach that uses the latest engineering and design technologies. As a fully bow-to-stern digital design, BAE Systems has been able to substantially de-risk construction for the Royal Navy with Australia standing to benefit from all learning drawn from the UK construction program.
