The Voyage of the Air Warfare Destroyer Program
Over the past decade, more than 5,000 people have dedicated millions of hours of effort to the Air Warfare Destroyer Program, Australia’s largest and most complex Defence program.
This is a unique behind-the-scenes look at how our highly skilled workforce has built the foundation of Australian shipbuilding and integration in the Osborne Naval Shipyard in South Australia. With hundreds of full colour photographs and stories about: our people; our three air warfare destroyers Hobart, Brisbane and Sydney; and industry partners ASC Shipbuilding, Raytheon Australia, Navantia Australia and the Commonwealth – this book takes us on a ten year journey from the brownfield site at Osborne through to Brisbane’s Provisional Acceptance. Meet the workforce behind the Defence force.
