The first operational contract of the Future Submarine Program is meant to launch program activities between the Australian government and DCNS. This “Design and Mobilisation Contract” focuses on program set up and coordination with the Combat System Integrator (CSI) and the Australian partners, and commences activities for the development of the submarines for the Australian Navy.

The announcements were made in Australia by the Minister for Defence Industry, the Hon Christopher Pyne MP and the Minister for Defence, Senator the Hon Marise Payne.

Hervé Guillou, DCNS chairman and CEO, stated: “DCNS is looking forward to a strategic and sustainable partnership with the Commonwealth of Australia, Lockheed Martin and Australian Industry.” He added: “This is a significant step forward in the Program. This contract will allow DCNS to commence the initial phase of Australia’s Future Submarine. DCNS is committed to ensuring that Australia has a regionally superior submarine constructed in Adelaide and develops a sovereign naval industry.”
