There are 12 major capital projects under management within the Collins submarine program to improve the reliability and capability of the submarine fleet. Nine of these have been approved by Government and are in various stages of delivery, while three are yet to be approved and are being prepared for consideration by Government. Most of the approved projects are nearing completion and are scheduled for closure by 2019. The unapproved projects seek to upgrade the Collins communications, electronic warfare and sonar systems, and to enhance Australia’s submarine escape and rescue capability.
