Defence RFI for Integrated Undersea Surveillance

Defence RFI for Integrated Undersea Surveillance

As part of the Force Structure Plan 2020, the Government intends to invest in the Royal Australian Navy’s next generation of undersea surveillance. As this capability advances over the next few decades, it will contribute to Australia’s maritime awareness and protection of sea lines of communication. This will be done through the delivery of enhanced command and control of current Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) assets, the introduction into service of dedicated ocean surveillance platforms and sensors and development of innovative and emerging technologies to maintain a capability edge.
