What is the Future Submarine Program?

At a cost of more than $50b, the Future Submarine Program is the most extensive Defence procurement program in Australia’s history. This national endeavour aims to deliver a regionally superior submarine capability, which will be built, operated and sustained by Australian industry.

The build location for the Future Submarine fleet is in Osborne, South Australia, with the first submarine scheduled to enter service in the early 2030s. The Naval Shipbuilding Plan 2017 predicts the program will create and sustain more than 2,800 Australians jobs.

The commencement of the Future Submarine Program to deliver 12 regionally superior submarines began in 2016.
