Raytheon Delivers Submarine Combat System to Australian Navy

Tuesday, January 31, 2006
Raytheon Company successfully delivered the Collins-class submarine tactical command and control system to Australia, providing enhanced combat management, tactical and weapons control capabilities to the Royal Australian Navy. Raytheon will lead the installation and integration onboard the HMAS Waller, the first Collins-class diesel submarine to be equipped with the advanced tactical command and control system. Raytheon's AN/BYG-1 is the first international version of the company's proven submarine combat management system, designated the baseline combat system for the U.S. Navy's submarine fleet. Raytheon's AN/BYG-1, developed to replace Australia's existing combat management system, not only enables interoperability with the U.S. Navy but also brings enhanced capabilities to the Collins-class submarine fleet, including target motion analysis improvements and the ability to support MK48 Advanced Capability (ADCAP) torpedoes. Integration will bring together the combat system with components and sensors already onboard the Collins-class submarine, ensuring full end-to-end capability. Delivery to Australia follows the completion of a simulated exercise during which U.S. and Royal Australian Navy operators successfully detected, classified and located targets and launched several hundred MK48 ADCAP torpedoes, Harpoon missiles, and various countermeasures. Development efforts were performed as a cooperative partnership between Raytheon, Raytheon Australia, the U.S. Navy, the Royal Australian Navy and various industry partners, both in Australia and the United States. Under the Foreign Military Sales contract awarded in July 2003, the Raytheon-led team will develop and deliver five BYG-1 combat control systems for Collins-class submarines and land based test facilities.
