Thales Australia has been awarded a $100 million contract to design a sonar system for the upgrade of Collins class submarines, Australian Minister for Defence Industry Christopher Pyne informed.

Thales Australia will engage other Australian companies including Sonartech Atlas and L3 Oceania, as well as suppliers from the United Kingdom (UK) and France to design the Collins sonar system upgrade.

“The sonar system upgrade will install improved sonar sensor arrays aboard each of the Collins submarines, as well as improved signal processing systems,” Minister Pyne said.

“The Australian industry component of the contract to be led by Thales Australia is worth in the order of $50 million and will support around 50 Australian jobs in Sydney and Perth.”
