    Also RAN is getting two tankers from Spain

    Spain managed to milk the Aussies for plenty of naval hardware along with the LHD and DDG design

    But French got that submarine deal

    Lockheed Martin Aegis Battle Management Systems For Royal Australian Navy

    BY GDC BUREAU · SEPTEMBER 25, 2019


    The US State Department has cleared Australia to acquire US$185 million Aegis Combat Management System to equip its nine new Hunter-class Frigate under SEA 5000 program and to upgrade the Aegis CMS on its three SEA 4000 Hobart class DDGs.

    The Aegis Combat Management System is a centralized, automated, command-and-control and weapons control system that was designed as a total weapon system, from detection to kill. The heart of the system is the AN/SPY-1, an advanced, automatic detect and track, multi-function phased-array radar.

    The Aegis system integrated with the Hunter class’s CEA CEAFAR radar through a Saab 9LV interface, while the Hobart class’ Aegis system will be upgraded to the new Baseline 9 configuration with Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC) and the ability to conduct the ballistic missile defence mission if required.

    The Aegis package includes various Aegis-related equipment, including Command Display System (CDS) Consoles; Multi-Mission Display (MMD) systems; Tactical Equivalent Core Computing System (CCS) Cabinets; Tactical Equivalent AEGIS LAN Interconnect System (ALIS) Cabinets; Tactical Equivalent AEGIS Conversion Equipment Group Input/Output (ACEG I/0) Cabinets; and Tactical Equivalent Advanced Storage Area Network (ASAN) Cabinets; Global Command and Control System – Maritime (GCCS-M).

    Royal Australian Navy acquired other equipment includes AN/SPQ-15 Converter/Receiver and /signal data converter equipment; Defense Visual Information Distribution Service (DIVDS) cabinet; AN/SQQ-89 Sonobouy Processing Core Computing System racks; AEGIS simulator racks and workstations; AEGIS Training System; and various ancillary equipment and support products.

    Australia will significantly improve network-centric warfare capability for US forces operating in the pacific region through the acquisition of Aegis Combat Management System.
