Future Submarine Combat System Program
Lockheed Martin Australia is the combat system integrator for Australia's Future Submarine Program, partnering with the Department of Defence and Naval Group to design and integrate the combat system for the future fleet.
Lockheed Martin Australia (LMA) is committed to maximising opportunities for Australian industry involvement through all phases of the Future Submarine Program and are seeking interest from industry to inform the design phase of the program.
The Future Submarine Combat System Program presents an opportunity for Australian Industry to participate in an exciting and strategically important program to build and maintain an enduring and regionally superior Australian submarine capability. This is a long Program and the technological solutions potentially sought may not necessarily have been invented yet. Therefore, Research and Development (R&D) will play an integral function in the successful delivery of the Program.
LMA invites companies to register their interest in participating in the Combat System Program for consideration to receive Request for Quotation for systems and subsystems as detailed below.

Research and Development (R&D)
Lockheed Martin Australia has recently completed its initial call for R&D proposals.
The R&D activities are designed to support industry in exploring new solutions and sovereign technologies relating to specified R&D topics for application in design activities for the FSP combat system.
Initial RFP Closed 22 October 2018.
LMA is currently evaluating the responses received as part of this initial call.
We expect to execute agreements in relation to this activity by December 2018.
The next R&D process will be conducted in the third quarter of 2019.
There currently exists an opportunity to submit ideas for consideration in support of future R&D activities (please see work package below).
Naval Group of France was announced as Australia's international partner for the design of the Future Submarine in April 2016 and a Design and Mobilisation Contract was signed on 30 September 2016. To register interest in becoming a supplier to Naval Group click HERE.
