Flinders’ future in frigates

It looks like Flinders U was really hoping UK shipbuilder BAE would win the Future Frigate contract. DVC R Robert Saint, defence partnership director Tony Kyriacou and maritime engineering academic Karl Sammut were talking to BAE in the UK on Friday when its win was announced.  The university says it will access the company’s digital shipbuilding tools and will use them, “to train the people who will build the future frigates and integrate the ships’ complex operating systems.”
