BAE, Australia Ink Global Combat Ship Design Contract; Glynn Phillips Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting event

BAE Global Combat ShipBAE Systems and Australia have signed a contract that would allow the company to refine its Type 26 Global Combat Ship design in an effort to meet the requirements of Australia's naval force as part of the SEA 5000 Future Frigate program.

Glynn Phillips, CEO of BAE's Australian arm, said in a statement released Thursday the company aims to demonstrate the “adaptability” of its GCS design to meet the Royal Australian Navy's anti-submarine warship frigate requirements.

BAE's Australian arm will use a three-dimensional visualization platform to facilitate understanding of the GCS design's features, deploy the company’s Australian engineers to the U.K. to facilitate technology transfer, and demonstrate how the vessel would incorporate the CEA Technologies-built phased-array radar platform.

Australia also signed Future Frigate design contracts with Navantia and Fincantieri as part of the competitive evaluation process for the SEA 5000 program.
