Lockheed, Acacia Research Serve Australian Navy

Wednesday, November 11, 2009

Lockheed Martin Australia of Canberra and Acacia Research, Ltd. of Adelaide are teaming to pursue the combat system integrator role for the Royal Australian Navy's Future Submarine project, SEA 1000.

Under this Department of Defence project, 12 next-generation submarines are envisioned to replace Australia's six existing Collins-class boats. SEA 1000 is expected to be the Australian government's largest-ever single defence project.

Under the teaming arrangement, Lockheed Martin Australia will lead overall management of the program pursuit. Following contract award, it would develop and integrate an advanced combat system for the new submarine class, serving as the prime contractor and systems integrator. Acacia Research will be a principal team member.

The two companies already are working together to integrate some of Acacia Research's applied research into Lockheed Martin's generic combat systems architecture. They will leverage this work to pursue the Future Submarine programme.
