Bringing discussion and research to the surface

Welcome to the home page of the Submarine Institute of Australia.

Established in 1999 and now widely recognised as the premier independent source of advice on submarine matters in Australia, the SIA has a vision that builds on the upcoming centenary of submarines (1914-2014).

Contrary to the first 100 years of submarines in RAN history when their participation in the Navy was periodic, the second 100 years requires a very determined and successful approach to sustaining and growing the submarine capability.
