Australian Navy takes design tool for submarines

QinetiQ : 10 October, 2013  (Application Story)
Paramarine ship and submersible design software will be used in the design of submarines for the Royal Australian Navy
Australian Navy takes design tool for submarines

Australia is considering several options for its Future Submarine project (SEA 1000) and the Government’s Integrated Project Team (IPT) responsible for designing option four, has selected QinetiQ’s Paramarine ship and submersible design software tool. SEA 1000 is the largest and most complex Defence project ever undertaken by Australia. It will replace the Royal Australian Navy’s existing six Collins Class submarines with an expanded fleet of 12 conventional submarines to be assembled in South Australia.

Vittorio Vagliani, Managing Director of QinetiQ GRC, said: “We are very pleased Paramarine has been selected for this task.  Paramarine is the world’s premier submarine software design tool and is used by governments, navies and commercial builders in countries such as Korea, Brazil, Turkey, India and the United Kingdom.”

The selection was aided by QinetiQ Australia, which provides local sales and support for Paramarine on behalf of QinetiQ GRC, a wholly owned subsidiary of QinetiQ and a part of QinetiQ’s Maritime division. QinetiQ Australia is also a member of the SEA 100 IPT panel working on option four.

Alan Woolford, Chief Executive Officer of QinetiQ Australia, said: “Paramarine is without a doubt the best software tool to help Australia design an option that will best meet its future strategic and capability requirements. QinetiQ Australia is proud to be a part of the IPT panel for option four. We are independent from submarine manufacturers, yet we have a wealth of experience through our QinetiQ Maritime division in providing advice to governments and Navies across the globe on how to successfully achieve optimal designs for new platforms, including submarines.”
