ASC Shipbuilding has placed orders with Craig International Ballistics, REDARC Defence Systems and Veem to undertake studies into whether three additional Australian companies can form part of the supply chain for the build phase of the first batch of frigates:

Craig International Ballistics will investigate whether they can provide an Australian solution for ship bridge windows and armour protection;

REDARC Defence Systems will explore if it can provide an Australian solution to LED lighting throughout the ships;

Veem will study security requirements for local propeller manufacture in Australia.

These feasibility studies form part of ASC Shipbuilding’s strategy for maximising Australian industry involvement in the Hunter Class Frigate Program, and beyond.
