The inaugural prototype of the autonomous undersea vehicle, dubbed “Ghost Shark,” is now prepared.

The Australian government is set to introduce a sovereign, autonomous undersea capability through the Ghost Shark Program. Developed in collaboration with Defence and Anduril Australia, Ghost Shark will serve as Mission Zero (0) for the Advanced Strategic Capabilities Accelerator (ASCA), focusing solely on Defence’s highest priorities with a clear pathway for innovation transition to capability.

Ten Australian companies have joined forces with Anduril Australia to facilitate Ghost Shark’s manufacturing, while 42 other Australian companies are poised to benefit from involvement in the supply chain. Ghost Shark will equip the Navy with a covert, long-range autonomous undersea warfare capability, enabling persistent intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, and strike operations. Furthermore, it will bolster the Navy’s capacity to collaborate effectively with allies and partners.
