Strategic Insights 22 - Cutting Edge: The Collins experience

By Patrick Walters

Authored by Patrick Walters this paper provides a broad overview of the Collins Class submarine project - the most ambitious and controversial defence project ever undertaken in Australia.

It examines the industry, capability and strategic impact of this complex defence project and finds that the Commonwealth’s $5 billion investment has not only provided Australia with a key strategic asset but also greatly boosted the skill base of our naval construction industry.
