The maritime divisions are responsible for all acquisition and sustainment business conducted through CASG's Maritime Systems, Submarines and Naval Surface Warships, including the Air Warfare Destroyer program.
The Air Warfare Destroyer program is one of the largest Defence projects ever undertaken. It is a multi-phased project to acquire a multi-role surface combatant that will significantly increase Australia’s defence capabilities.
Maritime Systems Division provides through-life support services to Navy and Army maritime capability for Australian ships. It supports capabilities like state-of-the-art missiles and torpedoes as well as supplying fuels and prescribed common items to the ADF.
The Ships Acquisition Division will be responsible for the acquisition of Australia’s major surface combatants including the Air Warfare Destroyers and the Future Frigate Program.
The Submarine Group is responsible for all materiel-related aspects of submarine support across Defence, and works closely with the Chief of Navy, other government departments and industry to manage Australia's submarine capability. The group manages sustainment of the existing Collins Class submarine fleet, combat systems for the Collins and the competitive evaluation process that will lead to the selection of Australia’s Future Submarine fleet.
