Selex ES has won a contract worth about 125 million euros to provide and support modernization of communication systems of the Royal Australian Navy’s (RAN) eight ANZAC-Class frigates, as part of the SEA1442 Phase 4 programme.
The company has been established to play a leading role in the delivery and support of the programme and will be the focal point for the transfer of skills and experience to Australian industry. The first upgraded ship is planned to enter service in 2018.
Under project SEA 1442 Phase 4, the Australian Industry Capability elements will complement the important work undertaken by Finmeccanica to identify potential competitive opportunities for Australian small and medium enterprises under the Australian Government Global Supply Chain programme, where Finmeccanica entered in 2012.
Looking forward, the capability upgrade will lay the foundation of a maritime architecture critical to future RAN tactical communications. It will also contribute towards the Australian Defence Force’s network-centric warfare concept in the maritime environment, helping reach the goal of a networked RAN.
