BAE Systems Australia has selected Lockheed Martin Australia and Saab Australia to deliver combat management system (CMS) integration on the Royal Australian Navy's Hunter class frigates, the company announced on 23 November.

BAE Systems is responsible for the design, integration, testing and activation of the combat system which will be fitted to the Hunter class anti-submarine fleet.

The CMS for the fleet will be the Aegis weapon system, together with an Australian tactical interface to be developed by Saab Australia. The combat system will be able to detect and identify aircraft, submarines and ships at great distances to provide situational awareness to the frigate’s command team and the ability to defend itself or engage with an enemy.

According to BAE Systems, Lockheed Martin Australia and Saab Australia were selected as part of a competitive tender process and following a rigorous evaluation.
