The Challenge

ASC Shipbuilding is Australia’s leading naval shipbuilding organisation, contributing to the nation’s continuous naval shipbuilding strategy and developing sovereign capability.

As part of the Hunter Class Frigate Program (HCFP), the maximisation of Australian Industry Capability (AIC) raises Australian industry ability to compete for and win domestic and international maritime work. This increased demand facilitates long-term investment and the development of a sustainable and competitive sovereign naval shipbuilding industry.

To achieve this, challenge-based innovation calls will be periodically called to encourage technological innovations to be transformed from content to capability, and realised through technology and performance. 

ASC Shipbuilding invite problem solvers to submit solutions to their latest challenge: Digital Shipyard Track and Trace in the age of Industry 4.0

This challenge features two categories:

  • Augmented Industry 4.0 heavy manufacturing at the work cell.

Solutions could explore: Cell level digital confirmation of asset identity. Cell level digital confirmation of location. Enabler for digital systems (people, machines, instructions, performance) at a shipyard.

  • Shipyard-level location & condition.

Solutions could explore: Parts, sub assemblies, tools, & equipment location tracking & condition monitoring. Can encompass real-time-location-systems and industrial-internet-of-things sensors to provide a holistic dataset for visualisation. Solutions for wearables & cyber security.
