Finally, the wait is over. The SEA 5000 design and prime contractor has been announced. Congratulations to BAE Systems Australia (BAE). The Future Frigate program will see BAE prime the build of nine ships in Adelaide for the Royal Australian Navy. ASC Shipbuilding (ASC) will play their part in the program and become a subsidiary of BAE for the duration of the build. Whilst not entirely clear at this stage exactly what that will look like or when it will occur, we expect the ASC transition to become clearer in the coming weeks and months. ASC still need to complete the build and warranty phases of the AWD program and are due to begin constructing the first two OPV’s for Luerssen Australia under SEA 1180 later this year.Keep reading
What sets us apart? INTEL.
We have more experience providing people to the Defence sector than anyone else in Australia. We know more of the people who are experts in this space, and can truthfully claim that we have access to intel that others will never have.
Here are the facts.
- 15 years in Defence – many of our consultants have worn a uniform.
- 16 dedicated consultants – more than all of our competitors put together.
- 4 specialist teams – Land, Sea, Air and ICT, we’re experts, not generalists.
- 20,000 plus conversations a year – giving us a unique ability to inform and influence the entire community.
- Exclusive network of security-cleared professionals

We see ourselves as enablers to the Australian Defence sector. We’ve got our finger on the pulse across the whole sector, from government to suppliers to personnel. We collect and collate extensive intel. We amalgamate this well of knowledge, connecting the dots to help improve Australia’s Defence capability.
We came from Defence. We live for Defence.
