ASC welcomes next stage of future submarine project



Australian submarine builder and maintainer ASC welcomes the announcement of Lockheed Martin as the combat system integrator for the Future Submarine project and the signing of the design and mobilisation contract between the Government and DCNS.


ASC Interim CEO Stuart Whiley said, “ASC has a unique understanding of Australia’s submarine construction, sustainment and operating environment through its work with the Collins Class submarines.


“ASC has already commenced discussions with DCNS and Government, and looks forward to discussions with Lockheed Martin, as the company transitions to a multi-class submarine fleet,” Mr Whiley said.


“Today’s announcement is a significant step forward for this very important project and ASC remains ready willing and able to assist all parties in ensuring Australia has an enduring, potent and sovereign submarine capability well into the future,” he said.
