AUKUS’ phased strategy

AUKUS enhances collaboration, technology integration, and the reinforcement of Australia's submarine force with key initiatives that include:

Sharing U.S. capabilities with our allies

The U.S. is selling three Virginia-class submarines to Australia to replace its current fleet of Collins-class submarines set to retire in the 2030s.

Collaborating on innovative submarine technology

Joint British-Australian production and operation for the innovative SSN-AUKUS submarine class.

Developing the SSN-AUKUS

A trilaterally created submarine, combining technology from all three nations and utilizing the U.K.’s next-gen design.


We believe in a world that protects freedom and respects human rights, the rule of law, the independence of sovereign states, and the rules-based international order.”
