Naval Group has selected Babcock International to design the weapon discharge system for the Royal Australian Navy’s Attack class submarines.

The weapon discharge system will launch the submarine main weapons, including torpedoes and anti-ship missiles.

According to the Australian Department of Defence, Babcock will transfer the necessary intellectual property to its Australian subsidiary, Babcock Australia, to act as the Engineering Design Authority for the work.

Under Australia’s Project Sea 1000 12 submarines will be built for the Royal Australian Navy to replace its existing fleet of six Collins class submarines and expand its sub-surface capability.

The submarine design contract for the new class was signed with Naval Group in March 2019.
