Surface Systems Integration

Proven. Effective. Dependable.
Lockheed Martin pioneered combat systems integration more than 40 years ago, and we have continued to evolve our proven solution as Australia’s premiere naval systems integrator. At the speed of innovation, we are delivering the capabilities that enable Australia to rise to the challenges of today and tomorrow.

Proven Performance (Rollover to Zoom In)

Lockheed Martin has over 40 years of proven performance of successful surface combatant systems integration.

Aegis Weapons System


Integrated Proven Performance

Any mission, any ship, any time. Aegis is ready. Lockheed Martin has more than 40 years of proven performance in delivering air and missile defence to countries around the world with its Aegis Combat System.

Aegis is operational in over 100 surface combatants in-service with the U.S. Navy and allied navies, including Japan, the Republic of Korea, Norway, Spain, and soon Australia. Named after the mythical shield of Zeus, Aegis provides proven, integrated performance for weapons and sensors.

The Aegis Combat System is the maritime combat system of choice -- a worldwide network, encompassing seven ship classes in six countries.

Hobart Class – Air Warfare Destroyer

Protecting the Borders

Lockheed Martin has over 40 years of experience in engineering, integrating and delivering Aegis to countries around the world.

The Aegis Weapons System forms the central element of the Combat System, including area defence capabilities that will be provided by the Royal Australian Navy's new fleet of three Hobart-class air warfare destroyers.

Lockheed Martin completed delivery of the Aegis Weapons System for the first Australian air warfare destroyer, HMAS Hobart, in mid 2012. She was officially launched on 23 May 2015.

We continue to deliver our support through our systems integration expertise to ensure the Hobart-class destroyers are successfully integrated and ready to protect Australia’s borders.

Surface Combatant Common Source Library


Driving Affordability across the Fleet

The Aegis Common Source Library (CSL) is a software development repository that enables customers to rapidly integrate new capabilities and processes across the fleet in a “build once, use many times” framework. Aegis CSL can be used across a variety of platforms, ranging from multiple classes and types of ships to land-based systems. Through the Aegis CSL, an innovation or new systems integration made for one Aegis vessel, can be leveraged across the fleet and around the world.

Aegis CSL enhances life cycle affordability by reducing costs for integration, test and certification, which drives affordability.

Common is key. This commonality allows far greater interoperability across the fleet, which will further reduce training costs and improve flexibility in crew assignments.

SEA 5000 Future Frigate

Through Life Collaborative Partner

With over 40 years of surface combatant integration experience, Lockheed Martin has proven performance in delivering combat systems rapidly and affordably.

Leveraging the systems currently on the ANZAC class frigates and Hobart-class destroyer, we provide commonality and interoperability across the Australian fleet and international navies. The integrated combat system will provide the Royal Australian Navy with the most advanced capabilities in the world. The open architecture enables rapid integration and a low risk path for future modernisation and additional warfighting capabilities.

Our integrated combat system will provide total ship capability including the ability to integrate with future and existing Australian indigenous systems, eliminating the need for an additional interface and integration layer.

Ship Integration and Test

Total Ship Integration

It’s one thing to engineer the world’s most advanced maritime combat system, but it is quite another to successfully integrate it on some of the most sophisticated, complex vessels on the planet. But that is the role of Lockheed Martin’s ship integration and test team. Our engineers and technicians innovate new cost-saving and capability-expanding solutions for the U.S. Navy.
