The program seeks to establish the Australian industrial capability necessary to support the build, operation and sustainment of the Future Submarine. This will involve maximising the involvement of Australian industry in all phases of the Program without compromising capability, cost, schedule or risk.
Australias Future submarines will be built in Australia, in Adelaide. The first submarine will commence service in the early 2030s with construction of the last submarine in the 2050s. Sustainment will continue into the 2080s. Click HERE for further information on the program and naval shipbuilding plan.
Naval Group (formerly DCNS) was announced as Australia's international partner for the design and build of 12 Future Submarines on 26 April 2016.
In September 2016, the Government announced that Lockheed Martin Australia would be the Combat System Integrator for the Future Submarine Program. To register interest in becoming a supplier to Lockheed Martin Australia, click HERE.
For over 400 years, Naval Group has been a European leader in naval defence. Naval Group has over 13,000 employees worldwide and designs, builds and maintains submarines and/or surface vessels for the French Navy, Brazil, India and Malaysia. Naval Group has suppliers from all around the world, and becoming a supplier to Naval Group provides opportunities to join that global supply chain.
We seek registrations of interest from suppliers for a range of equipment and services that will be required to deliver Australia's future submarines. The Naval Group supplier database will form an important tool in understanding the breadth and capability areas of suppliers. It is the first step in the Naval Group supplier qualification process.
Naval Group will use this and other information to identify opportunities for suppliers to participate in capability development programs, access grants, be invited to participate in requests for tender and partner with Naval Group or its prime contractors.
Regardless of background industry or size, any company interested in being a part of the Naval Group supply chain and the Future Submarine Program needs to register its interest and keep its company and capability information up to date on the ICN gateway. Even if a Supplier Pre-Qualification Questionnaire (SPQQ) has already been lodged, registration on this ICN Gateway is necessary.
