@Cultured_Bogan said in Shipbuilding Osborne Naval Shipyard South Aust:
Our business would have been involved with the fitout down there I imagine. We do a lot of defence work in our SA branch.
Good to see manufacturing still in Australia. I believe all defence manufacturing take place in Australia, from uniforms through to weapons and vehicles.
Yes I agree. I hope your business receives more Defence contracts as we need to rely on our own ingenuity.
I have attached a link which details the latest upgrade to the Anzac Class frigates by BAE Systems at Henderson Yard near Fremantle. The CEAFAR-L2 radar on the frigates is Australian designed and built in the ACT. This is cutting edge technology which has transformed theses ships to perhaps the best ships of their size in the world. This radar has proven to be able track multiple sea skimming missiles unlike many of the systems equipping the world’s navies,
The upgrade involves most compartments in the ships including diesel engine mods for more power and efficiency, new sewage system, new air conditioning system, new galley, new communications suite as well as the radar upgrades. HMAS Arunta took 20 months to complete but the remaining completion times for the next 7 ships should be reduced.
