AWD Systems Centre
The AWD Systems Centre is the engine room of the nation building Air Warfare Destroyer project – one of Australia's largest naval shipbuilding projects ever.
This state-of-the-art project management, engineering and commercial headquarters of the AWD project houses AWD Alliance partners the Defence Materiel Organisation, Shipbuilder: ASC, Hobart Class Combat System Systems Engineer: Raytheon Australia and capability partners Navantia, the United States Navy, and Lockheed Martin Corporation.
It provides a high-tech hub where around 400 expert naval architects, project managers, combat systems engineers, logistics teams, planners and procurements specialists are working together to deliver the most powerful and advanced warships Australia has ever operated.
The two-level AWD Systems Centre overlooking the ASC Shipyard was officially opened by Minister for Defence Materiel in December 2010. It has been built to achieve a five-star green star rating signifying Australian excellence in environmentally sustainable design and construction.
