"Special Report: Sea 5000 and ASW capability – making sense of a complex picture" A very good article written by Katherine Ziesing on australiandefence.com
Very informative on current state the art on ASW re. Mono-static, Bi-static and Multi-static, and associated torpedo defense systems with Thales and Ultra Systems.
After reading slightly surprised the Australians have not specified ASW fit as they have with radar - CEAFAR 2 and the CMS - Saab Australia 9LV with associated Lockheed IAFCL, International Aegis Fire Control Loop, for integration of SM-2 and radar, to create common systems with Hobarts.
Re. The Navantia F5000, update of F100/Hobart for SEA5000, expect to be the basis of the design for BIW FFG(X) bid, may be propulsion changed from CODOG to CODLOG as F5000 prime mission is ASW, few details of design have been disclosed.
