The boats are currently in production at Austal’s Henderson shipyard in Western Australia, and are slated for delivery to the RAN from September 2021.

The solution that will be supplied by Rohde & Schwarz includes the company’s Naval Integrated Communications System (NAVICS), which has been integrated with secure external line of sight, and beyond line of sight communications.
