With advanced vessels ranging from patrol boats to multi-purpose frigates and amphibious ships, plus a fleet of high-tech helicopters, the Navy has technical capabilities that satisfy diverse strategic needs.
The Navy is tasked with protecting an exceptionally long coastline, as well as contributing to regional security and international peacekeeping and disaster-relief operations. This calls for a flexible and adaptable naval capability, resourced with leading-edge technology across ships, submarines, aircraft, weapon systems and communications.
The Navy relies on complex communication systems to maintain contact between vessels above and below the surface, aircraft, command positions, and allied forces. Across radar, sonar, radio, microwave and satellite technology we also operate some of the world's most sophisticated surveillance and intelligence gathering systems, to identify threats and maintain strategic superiority.
