Corporate document | Australia's requirement for submarines
Australia's Requirement for Submarines provides a high level summary of the considerations behind the decision about the replacement of the Collins Class. It provides a brief qualitative discussion on the reasons behind the replacement submarine. The replacement of the Collins class submarine is one of the largest and most important defence projects Australia will undertake.
Over many years DST has provided extensive science and technology support for the Collins class and has aided the development of concepts for the Future Submarine to replace the Collins class. The paper was written to provide a brief discussion on the issues that need to be examined when considering the acquisition of a new submarine for Australia.
