Subs Program Shake Up


Recent review of the much troubled Collins submarine project (Australia) identified the major shortcomings as:

  • The combat system is inadequate and out of date,
  • Poor design and manufacture of the diesel engines, which has resulted in broken pistons and crankshafts;
  • Noise resulting from poor machinery, hull and propeller design;
  • Cracked propeller blades;
  • Vibration and poor images with the periscopes;
  • Poor communications systems.

The Australian Government will allocate $80 million toward a combined RAN/USN programme to remedy the operational limitations on the Collins-class submarines. The programme will test a number of new propeller designs and hull improvements, and trial some advanced combat system components used in US Navy submarines. The programme will be in addition to the work being undertaken by the Australian Submarine Corporation and the DSTO. More information: Defence Systems Daily
