Supporting advanced naval tech for extreme ocean conditions

Astute’s dedicated maritime division encompasses all aspects of Naval and Civil marine applications including unmanned and undersea vessels.

With decades of innovation experience in the marine defence industry, Astute’s trusted component expertise has supported major builds including Astute, Australian Hunter, and Dreadnaught Class submarines and T26 & T31E combat ships. Against robust competition, Astute has also secured Future Maritime Support Programme (FMSP) contracts for the UK Royal Navy’s HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier and T45 air-defence destroyers.

Whether for naval vessels, merchant ships, at-sea and undersea infrastructure maintenance, exploration, ocean research, or the most sophisticated superyachts and cruise liners, Astute’s extensive marine science, technology, engineering, and supply chain solutions services are able to cover your entire project span from design-in to through-life support.

Astute’s focus is on innovation, upgrades, and quality components that keep ships out of dock and in service.
Our specialist, highly-knowledgeable team focuses on rapid service & repair, electronics, service provisions, kitting & IT hardware, cable assemblies, consumables, hand tools, and obsolescence management — including long-term nitrogen component storage.

We also provide you with access to the latest component technologies in controls and instrumentation, emergency propulsion systems, communications, and more.

Whatever your project, and whether for specific products or services that help streamline your production process, Astute’s long-standing, international supply chain services, global sourcing capability, and accredited counterfeit mitigation services all help you avoid problems of fraudulent parts and component obsolescence.

Delivering engineering and supply chain solutions across the maritime sector.
