Current opportunities

The Australian defence and security landscape is dynamic as State and Federal Governments ensure the nation’s capability, now and into the future. Below are some of the key projects where Saab has opportunity to provide world-leading capability, right here in-country.

Collins Life-of-type extension

The Australian Government is investing $6 billion in refitting all six of the nation’s Collins Class Submarines under a life-of-type extension (LOTE) program. As the designer of the submarine and supplier of its highly reliable Integrated Ship Control, Management and Monitoring System, Saab is well placed to help in this work.

Naval Combat Systems

Saab Australia's AusCMS has been the Royal Australian Navy's combat system of choice for over three decades. AusCMS is the core of the combat capability onboard the current Anzac Class frigates, Canberra Class landing helicopter docs, Supply Class AOR and Arafura Class OPV and we will be on the Hunter Class frigates and Hobart Class destroyers.
