Aegis combat system upgrade covers three Royal Australian Navy air warfare destroyers.

Lockheed Martin Australia is supporting an Aegis combat system upgrade on the three Royal Australian Navy Hobart-class air warfare destroyers, under the SEA 4000 Phase 6 Combat System Design Agent (CSD-A) programme.

A two-year A$33 million ($23.5 million) contract, announced on 16 December, will see Lockheed Martin Australia perform most of the work in Adelaide. Industry partners such as Sydney-based Relegen will support configuration updates associated with CSD-A activities.

Lockheed Martin Australia is delivering advanced naval combat systems engineering services under the CSD-A contract. ‘This will achieve the landmark integration of the Aegis Combat System Baseline 9 software into the Hobart-class destroyers,’ the company noted in a statement.
