Australian government plans to invest regional anti-submarine warfare capabilities, including the provision of training subsystems. This capability will improve the ADF’s Anti Submarine Warfare proficiencies for more complex operations and environments.


The Morrison Government will invest around $11 million to acquire an advanced anti-submarine warfare capability for Defence.

Minister for Defence, Senator the Hon Linda Reynolds CSC said the new AUV62-AT, Intermediate Anti-Submarine Warfare Training Target will enhance Australia’s warfighting capabilities.

Navy will partner with Saab Australia to bring the new capability into service, providing opportunities for local industry to contribute to the project.

Australian companies, including locally-owned company BlueZone Group, which has facilities in Newcastle, Perth and Melbourne, will have the opportunity to support and manage the operation, repair and maintenance of the AUV62-AT for Defence.

About the AUV62-AT:

The AUV62-AT is flexible, adaptable and can operate in several different modes, enabling it to comply with various sets of training regulations. It can generate realistic submarine noises and echoes, which are transmitted at a precise target strength and over clearly defined distances.

The payload module of the AUV62-AT includes a transducer tail, which mirrors the physical properties of a submarine so as to provide realistic training, including ASW torpedo firing.

The tail incorporates transmitting and receiving transducers so that training personnel can perform onboard analysis of the location of active sonars or attacking torpedoes.

Capable of deceiving any torpedo homing system, the AUV62-AT's tail system provides forces with a highly qualified tactical training target.
