The Submarine Design Contract is the first contract workscope to be fully executed under the Strategic Partnering Agreement for the Australian Future Attack-class Submarine Program, the company said in a statement Tuesday.
The scope for this phase of work includes the ongoing maturation of the Attack Class design as it progresses into the next design phase known as the Definition phase. This will include the source selection of over 100 critical and main equipment that will contribute to the submarine design solution.
The Submarine Design Contract also includes ongoing preparations for the build of the Attack Class in the Osborne shipyard in South Australia, including ongoing support to Australian Naval Infrastructure (ANI) for the design and build of the Submarine Construction Yard and the ICT systems that will be employed in there.
The first phase of the Submarine Design Contract is worth $605 million and will extend through to 2021.
