SAAB Australia Wins $24.2 Million ASC Contract

The Minister for Defence Industry, the Hon Christopher Pyne MP, has congratulated Saab on their recent contract with ASC to supply an updated Integrated Ship Control Management and Monitoring System (ISCMMS) for four Royal Australian Navy Collins class submarines.

“I congratulate Saab on their technological advancement and also thank ASC for their work integrating this upgrade into HMAS Collins,” Minister Pyne said.

“This $24.2 million project will support 50 jobs, the majority of which are in Adelaide.

Saab’s ISCMMS enables the Collins class submarines to manoeuvre; and fully integrates the management of propulsion, trim, power generation and ship services.

HMAS Waller will be upgraded in 2018, and the system will be integrated into the remaining submarines in 2019 as they undergo their routine maintenance cycles.
